Oh dear, they seem to be learning from FoxNews, but in that case they suspended
an anchor because she refused to read a story she knew to be false.

And then AFAIK she _lost_ the court case for unfair
dismissal/suspension.

Land of the free.


Any links/info on this story/dismissal?

In some ways isn't this the opposite? Sky suspend a journalist whilst they
investigate claims that the story was fabricated by the journalist (i.e. Sky
management may have some integrity?) - Fox suspend a presenter for not
wanting to fabricate / broadcast an incorrect story?


You'd think the bosses at the time of broadcast could differentiate a scoop from
an highly improbable scoop, i.e. nobody else carrying the story, non of the
agencies reporting it on the wires.

You'd think - but even the BBC have run fictional stories.


Oh quite, the BBC are sometimes all too keen to run with a single unconfirmed
source, even when its veracity is extremely doubtful and opaque *cough*. News24
verifies from at least two independent sources before running with a story,
unfortunately during the war their presentation, lack of tact and loading of
elemental reports let them down.
