Yes Mark - you were very lucky you did not suffer the same fate on the strength of most of your earlier comments on this thread

Quite frankly I'm surprised you have the nerve to post this information

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black Mad

This goes to show what a poor press we have esp with the hacking scandal and yet people are still buying the papers

Toggy that's exactly the point I was trying to make on the thread about Newspaper of the Year

The press destroy lives and careers by publishing lies and smears and don't give a s--t as long as it sells them newspapers


I can't believe so many people seem to be taken in by them


A Life Less Ordinary

On Radio 4 yesterday..

I'm listening to it now and what a horror story it was for the poor man

"When Joanna Yeates went missing in December 2010, the story gripped the public imagination - the discovery of her murdered body on Christmas Day was not only a tragedy it was also a huge media event. Christopher Jefferies, her landlord, was entirely innocent of any wrong-doing, but when he was arrested on December 30th, many newspapers took it as a signal to launch a major assault on the retired teacher described in headlines as 'The Nutty Professor', 'The Strange Mr. Jefferies', and 'A Creep who Freaked Out Schoolgirls.' Pages were filled with false accusations about his private life, often from unattributed sources. When he was released without charge three days after his arrest, Mr Jefferies had to be protected by friends and family from the media and the coverage it had already published. He changed his appearance and was unable to return to his home for months.
Now, in the first part of a new series of 'A Life Less Ordinary', he examines some of the worst excesses of the coverage, sometimes for the first time, in a bid to describe what it's like to be thrust into the media spotlight in such a dramatic way - as an innocent man publicly vilified across the front pages of the national press. Mr Jefferies talks to Roy Greenslade and David Aaronovitch about how the media got it so badly wrong, leading to successful legal challenges by Mr Jefferies himself and the Attorney General. We hear from one of Mr Jefferies' former pupils, the director Roger Michell, now filming a major drama about the story, as well as family and friends who provided the support which allowed him to get through the worst of the ordeal, and finally emerge as a vocal campaigner for press reform."

Anything said about what the Yeates family think of all this new attention to their daughter's murder?
