Like any good journalist, I'm curious. There's a story out there and I'll be damned if the truth is going to get in my way. Facts are for wimps! If you can't find a good story - invent one, that's my motto.
So what if lives are ruined and reputations destroyed, news is cash, right!
Perjury is only wrong if you get found out. If it's good enough for Jeffrey Archer - it's good enough for me.
