I'm posting this as I think some people may find it interesting.

In FourFourTwo, the issue with January on the front, had quite a comprehensive round-up of the transfer window. Part of that was assessing which newspapers were the most reliable.

Now I do stress that this is based on the "resolved rumours since the end of the 07-08 season." So, here goes;



Newspaper, Correct Rumours Total Accuracy

1) Daily Record = 137, 430, 31.86%

2) The Guardian = 88, 306, 28.76%

3) The Herald = 16, 58, 27.59%

4) Times = 169 653 25.88%

5) Independent = 91 365 24.93%

6) Daily Mail = 255 1059 24.08

7) The Sun = 352 1525 23.15

8) Daily Express = 173 761 22.73

9) Scotsman = 5 20 20.00

10) Daily Star = 253 1284 19.70

11) Daily Mirror = 515 2619 19.66

12) Daily Telegraph = 52 271 19.19

13) NOTW = 118 886 13.32

14) People = 68 547 12.43

I'm surprised the Daily Telegraph is so low compared to the other broadsheets. It certainly isn't a surprise, however, to see that tat (NOTW, Daily Star etc) at the bottom of the list. Although with the highest % showing less than 1/3 of rumours proving correct it just goes to show that you should take every story you read in the paper with a pinch of salt - something I learnt a long time ago tbh.

daily express front page sample one ----- awful weather story coming --always wrong

sample 2---- ten million immigrants flocked here for free council houses and plasma tvs

sample 3 --- diana death not what it seemed

sample 4 -- house prices to tumble

sample 5 --- huge hidden tax shocker repeat ad in finitum for ever and ever amen

trust me look at its front pages in next two weeks and see how many come true .

the mirror tells us how great labour are while the country falls to bits around us

the record is accurate as it gets half stories direct from parkhead dressing room

the mail tells us its all that poles fault

the torygraph tells us we should shoot all the poor folk and foxes and it will all be ok

the only one without an agenda is the sport . todays nipple count 116 !!!!

watch for the odd numbers boys for a tri nipped cutie
