Lazy journalism

As previously reported here back in October 2006 thieves made off Banksy’s No Ball Games rat in Paddington having hacked it out of the wall. So it’s funny how in the last week its been picked up as a story and run by the BBC, NY Times amongst others. Keep up guys!

Maybe because it suspiciously turned up on Ebay for 20K? Ebay is fast becoming the lazy journalists story of choice (can’t be bothered to go to Devon to report on container ship looting? Just log on to Ebay to see what the scavengers are selling and make that the story. All from the comfort of your own office)!

Imagine the stories they’ll be able to run when they finally notice Elvis died?
