Notable

Salford, 27th April 2018

In response to the DP Prompt Notable

Nobody could miss the headline of the redtops

big brash and bold – and splashed liberally across the front page

A headline to shock – “EXCLUSIVE” and “SCOOP”

in bold capitals

everyone read the news underneath

till it was proven the day later – it was all a fabrication

politicians calling for editors heads , celebs joining in the circus

reporters not at their desks, hiding from the limelight

photographers seeking solace by a sunny retreat

the apology was notable – issued two days later

short and hidden on a column on Page 4
