Is this a new signing? Apparently a Newcastle Falcons player according to Daily Mail.

Just shows you the levels of journalism at some of these so called papers. Really poor show.

My favourite from the last week was the Telegraph which put out a predicted best XV for every team this season.
Falcons has Vickers and Hogg in, with no Green, Welch or Flood. At least make an effort...

Aye, standards of journalism have gone right down the pan. It's said (Private Eye)that reporters rarely get out of the office these days - and just trawl the Internet for 'stories' to fill the page up.Maybe why Smithy joined the Falcons so he wasn't tarred with the same brush!

Sad, but very true. I am glad I escaped from journalism unscathed. Things are seriously bad. Occasionally however it is still possible to find proper journalism.

Yes it seems as though the profession is rather too effective in Myanmar....

At least they didn't add in "Known as Roko to his mates". No surprise really that these things happen, it's only once or twice a year that the tabloids even pretend to care about pro club rugby.

To be fair, nobody wants to pay for newspapers these days, so they don't invest in proper journalists. If people wanted to pay for a quality product then professional journalists would still have jobs & would serve up decent quality articles, but in these days of click-bait online advertising instead of people actually paying for the product, you have to accept the dross that is served up.

You get what you don't pay for.

To be honest, I am amazed that some people still do buy newspapers these days. I suppose it is just habit, mainly by old people, but eventually the printed paper will probably vanish unless something changes in a major way.

I'm an old person and so buy and read a paper every day. But Monk is broadly right. This is not the place for a protracted debate in the issue, however there is a serious problem about democracy. Who will hold power to account?

I am away for a month so carry on the debate without me.
