Does the media make up stories?
Just ask George Clooney:
George Clooney has rejected the Daily Mail's apology for a false story about his fiancee's mother, describing the paper as "the worst kind of tabloid".
...After Clooney denounced the Mail for fabricating a story that was inaccurate [...and] rejected the paper's apology, accusing it of a "cover-up" and of telling a "premeditated lie"...
"In the apology, managing editor Charles Garside claims that the article was 'not a fabrication', but 'based the story on conversations with senior members of the Lebanese community,'" he wrote.
"The problem is that none of that is true. The original story never cites that source..."Furthermore, they knew ahead of time that they were lying..."What separates this from all of the ridiculous things the Mail makes up is that now, by their own admission, it can be proved to be a lie. In fact, a premeditated lie.
"So I thank the Mail for its apology. Not that I would ever accept it, but because in doing so they've exposed themselves as the worst kind of tabloid. One that makes up its facts to the detriment of its readers and to all the publications that blindly reprint them."
If they do that with Clooney, consider what they do with Israel..
