Great Moments In Journalism.

I overheard a radio phone in today where they were talking about Millwall football club and the determination of the press to portray their supporters as violent, racist thugs. One of the callers referred to the classic story of the Sun sending a reporter from one of the black newspapers (New Nation?) to a game against Brighton to report on what it was like, the reporter wrote a piece about shocking overt racism with thousands of fans chanting "Sieg Heil" in unison.

It was then pointed out to them that what he actually heard was Brighton fans chanting their club's nickname "Seagulls".
