image for No MEDIA HYSTERIA over Northern Rock DISASTER

High profile media figures have today spoken out against charges that it was they themselves that instigated the NORTHERN ROCK COLLAPSE in their sensationalist reporting.

"Yes, it is true that we broke the story on the IMPENDING NORTHERN ROCK DISASTER," a spokesman has said, "but the subsequent HYSTERIA AND MASS WITHDRAWALS" cannot be linked back to us."

Nevertheless, there are those who say that the WITHDRAWALS of over TWO BILLION DOLLARS are the fault of the media, whose reporting is claimed to has sparked the WIDESPREAD FEARS.

"Utter rubbish," a spokesman says, "There is no need to PANIC!!"

Coming Up: TERRORIST THREATS are not FEARED.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
