agreedI think we need people like Rich who will poke and prod so they can get stories that the likes of CBR would avoid because it might ruin their cosy relationship with the Big Two but if Rich is really sitting on something this big, he needs to get it properly sourced and run with it otherwise he's as bad as all those Fleet Street editors who spent years not printing the Savile story.
we have a growing generation of people who are getting into media and journalism because they are fans and want to keep their access, not people who are genuinely curious and want the truth of things
