DISCOVERED ON GOOGLE NEWS….Daily Mail Publishes Wrong GUILTY Story with FAKE ‘details’ as Amanda Knox Freed.
Well… it would be if the article wasn’t shocking.
Here’s the Daily Mail publishing two totally different stories on the Amanda Knox Trial.
Story 1. – Amanda Knox Guilty!
Basically it’s how journalism works these days – have both stories ready so they can publish quickly and be first to get the traffic from Google etc. But just LOOK at the detail they go into in the WRONG STORY.
Prosecutors were delighted with the verdict and said that ‘justice has been done’ although they said on a ‘human factor it was sad two young people would be spending years in jail’.
As Knox realized the enormity of what judge Hellman was saying she sank into her chair sobbing uncontrollably while her family and friends hugged each other in tears. A few feet away Meredith’s mother Arline, her sister Stephanie and brother Lyle, who had flown in especially for the verdict remained expressionless, staring straight ahead, glancing over just once at the distraught Knox family.
Following the verdict Knox and Sollecito were taken out of court escorted by prison guards and into a waiting van which took her back to her cell at Capanne jail near Perugia and him to Terni jail, 60 miles away.

Hang on. All that is bollocks as she was, in fact, acquitted :)
The CORRECT STORY was published later by the Daily Mail.
Story 2. – Amanda Knox Free! Correct well done
My friend Malcolm Coles has a post up and got his up just before me damn him! Like Malcolm I saw it on Google News. WOW! What a screw up – and what a price to pay for being first to break the news….
Want news? Probably better just getting a Twitter account these days…..
