British media raises itself to the gutter (again)

It was interesting, though unfortunately not surprising, to note a comment from those involved in the case of the young girl who escaped from 8 years in captivity.

In an interview on BBC TV news, on of the Austrians involved began his reply to a question by noting that the Austrians were surprised by the British media and amazed to be approached by newspapers offering huge amounts of money for the story – it would seem from the comments that only the British media were were indulging in this form of Chequebook Journalism.

The details came too quick thereafter as the interview picked up pace, but it would seem that all these offers were rejected, and the story released generally, with a trust being set up to lodge any income arising.
