Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And really serious journalists never report on an event unless the can quote two different sources taking opposite positions on what happened (or even whether it happened). And it's not just me saying it
In a way this goes beyond my original point, which was the unwillingness of the news media to referee a controversy by actually reporting the facts. Now it seems that a fact isn't worth reporting unless someone is prepared to deny it.

En un viejo país ineficiente, algo así como España entre dos guerras civiles, poseer una casa y poca hacienda y memoria ninguna. -- Gil de Biedma
