Mirror, Mirror on the wall

UK press at its best:-

Mirror, Monday: “EBOLA TERROR AS PASSENGER DIES AT GATWICK”.

No Ebola.

Mirror, Wednesday, “BOMB TERROR AT 38,000 FT”.

No bomb.

The Mirror's ebola fixation

And the commonwealth games

                   "BRITAIN ON RED ALERT"


The athlete at the Commonwealth Games had already tested negative for ebola before the Mirror ran this front page. The photos of a body on a stretcher were actually from Liberia.

Here is an interesting article from theguardian
