Everyone likes to have a pop at media speculation and rumours but I wonder how bad things are. The Newcastle fans, in particular, write off everything the media says about their club as 'biased southern based journalists making up lies about our club.' I've noticed many posts claiming that certain newspapers are never right. Fans will claim that they know more about their own club but, in reality, I'd think that journalists with contacts in clubs are more likely to know what's going on than fans 'who have a friend who's sister cleans the lavs at the ground'. The media is also used as a mouthpiece by managers, players and agents who are trying to engineer a move, they may not all come off but I'd think we'd all be lost without the media and their stories. It's too easy to write off various newspapers because they have to try to get it right. All newspapers have a duty to tell the truth, editors who want to be respected and journalists who want to get to the top through accurate and well informed reporting.........or am I being naive?
