Oh Cook, you're missing out mate! She's only the modern equivalent of a Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby or Louie Armstrong! Sheer lyrical and musical genius!
To use a rugby example, how many times have you read in the paper; (insert player here) rumoured to be signing with (insert team here) or (insert team here) rumoured to be interested in player)..
Some of the time the paper has heard something, but sometimes (and this actually happens) they just make **** up. Like Johnny Wilkinson was apparently approached by the Blues. When interviewed Pat Lam came out and said that the thought hadn't even entered his mind until he read about himself chasing Wilkinsons signature in the morning paper.
Seriously, have you never heard of tabloid news? Sure there are ethics standards and laws etc but you would have to be very naive to think that everything you read is the gospel..
I don't recall them saying he was chased by the Blues, rather that they had heard he was being chased by the Blues - no lies. Again, different to the Cooper case where we were given facts.
Did they really hear that.. or did an "undisclosed source" (read; we are running low on news and made something up) tell them. Making something up is pretty damn close to a lie
...It's like flogging a dead horse.Yes, and clearly that means people are less likely to believe it, because it's a rumour.
If they openly say it's a rumour then they aren't preaching it as the truth, which is fine. If they had said 'we know for a fact this has happened' then that's lying, saying 'we believe that this has happened' is fine, there's no lie that inherently affects anyone.
