Sun - not the most truthful in Britain

Ten minutes ago, a breaking news email from The Sun pinged into my inbox. It revealed that Alfie Patten, who a few months ago was reported, by The Sun, to be the youngest Dad in Britain at 13, ummm, isn't.

DNA tests have proved he wasn't the father. DNA tests have also proved that The Sun published a wholly inaccurate front page story and hasn't, in light of this 'new' development, apologised.

I say 'new' because as the rest of the world knew this on 27 March, when it was all over Google News.

I'm not sure how this has come to be reported now, as there was an injunction banning publication of further details of the case, but all will be revealed in time.

  1. At a guess I'd say that someone - possibly the Sun - has managed to get the injunction lifted.

    That or it's still in place and they've forgotten ...
