"In a vortex of irony so powerful it threatens to rupture the space-time continuum, the current handwringing over unethical tabloid journalism is giving rise to some unethical journalism of its own. The rule, post-News of the World, seems to be this: broadsheet newspapers and their celeb cheerleaders can say anything they like about the despised tabloids. Anything. It doesn’t matter if it’s true, false, sane or stupid. In the name of exposing the unethical practices of the low-rent press, you can apparently be as unethical as you bloody well like."
