That Leveson assertion that media has a ‘powerful reputation for accuracy’ again

levesonWhen the great Lord Justice Leveson attacked bloggers and social media and declared the mainstream media has a ‘powerful reputation for accuracy’ he didn’t do the so-called ‘fourth estate’ any favours.  It was inevitable some bloggers would use some of the multitude of glaring examples to the contrary to demonstrate what utter rubbish m’lud spoke.

Herman Van Rompuy is the President of the European Council.  Would someone please tell the Barclay Brother Beano‘s editorial staff..?

For the benefit of the Telegraph’s editorial team, with their attendant powerful reputation for accuracy, the Council of Europe has a Chairmanship which is held by a member state.  At this time it is Andorra (until May 2013).

Pleased that this ‘electronic version of pub gossip’ is be able to help the oh-so-grand font of truth!

    You must admit that it sounds like the ‘People’s Front of Judea’ vs the ‘Judean People’s Front’, though. It must be even more confusing in French!

    Thanks for the hattip AM

    @James P, it’s great isn’t it, you have the Council of Europe, the European Council and the Council of the European Union. Anyone might think such confusion was done deliberately.

    It is hardly surprising that today’s journalists do not know the difference. But then, isn’t this part of the bigger problem in that journalists need to keep politicians on their side and vice versa. Never mind us plebs/proles who are not intelligent enough to understand the real truth as we are all concerned more with jungles, ice skating, ballroom dancing and who is shagging who in “celebrity” world.
