Re: Well done reg but typical laywer...

I think the issue is when there is trial by media, which is all too common nowadays. When someone is acquitted, the media suddenly aren't interested and move on, having tarnished reputations. If the media outlet itself is found to have peddled lies on its front page, the correction is buried in a small column on page 14.

Of course this doesn't mean it should be buried. It just means the should be some balance.
