Camelot scoop tops standard

A day is obviously a long time in journalism. In the national media frenzy that followed Marketing Week’s Camelot story last week, one incident stands out.

The Evening Standard in London published the story on Wednesday afternoon, crediting your magazine – which came out that morning.

However, I noted that the next day, the same paper claimed that it, not Marketing Week, had broken the story.

If only journalists were subject to the same kind of scrutiny that the National Lottery operator is. But then I suppose there is no honour among thieves.
