Conflate

#fowc #conflate

Combining facts , data , and hearsay

Often produces a decent story,

Noted at expense of the facts

For years the newspaper teams have done it, and too

Late for the subject to get a right of reply

As he reads, the breakfast spoon falls into the porridge, and

Then , he’s in a word with his solicitor – who in turn

Engages in conversation with the newspapers editor to pack it in
