A mild outbreak of consternation occurred yesterday after it was discovered that a national daily paper had deliberately molested the truth, somewhere in a dark ally in the nation's capital.
Details are sketchy as to which bit of truth was deliberately toyed with, but it is certain that the affected story, which is currently under observation, may never be the same again.
One reporter heard rumours that this isn't an isolated incident and that there may well be more that one truth perverter out there, running around, frotting information and abusing honesty. He tracked down a, now cured, self confessed salacious story shagger, to a dingy basement bar in the city.
'Yeaah, I knew what I was doing' said the degenerate ex pap, 'and it was all deliberate as well. We would sit around talking about what the best angle would be to put on a story that might otherwise be a bit boring and lightweight for a front page and then we would blow it up out of all proportion and then sell it as the truth, people bought it, they loved it, couldn't get enough.'
