A top model reads a newspaper created by journalists

Britain is reeling after it emerged tabloid journalists have been doing their job properly for more than ten years.

Politicians and media commentators are in a state of shock after it was revealed last week that reporters from national newspapers have been finding out information that celebrities and others in the public eye wanted kept secret.

It was assumed the traditional image of journalists trawling through rubbish bins, eavesdropping on conversations, and sneaking a look at confidential documents was a thing of the past, but the news that tabloid reporters are still using every means at their disposal to do their job and get a story has sent shock-waves throughout the country.

One source in the UK said, "This is a total outrage. Everyone assumed our national press was now full of craven toadies slavishly re-writing press releases handed out by politicians and celebrities before heading down the pub for a nice drink and an early night.

'The fact tabloid journalists are still willing to push the boundaries to find out the secrets of those in the public eye - thereby enabling them to write up interesting articles that people actually want to read - is a disgrace."

Another added, "It's a good job Woodward and Bernstein weren't banned from using subterfuge and sneaky tactics, otherwise America would still be stuck with Nixon."

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