Over a week's passed since Tony Parrish broke the news about there being no cash for Lord Phillip Redmond to organise a closing ceremony for Liverpool's year of supposed culture, & yet the Liverpool Echo still hasn't caught up with the news. Either that, or they're desperately trying to put a spin on the news which doesn't:
1. Highlight their role as one of the year's corporate sponsors in the eyes of an increasingly dismissive local populace.
2. Draw attention to the apologia for journalism which the paper serves up.
3. Expose the Echo's extreme tardiness in reporting one of the biggest stories of 2008.
Over to you, Alastair (heard from the PCC yet, by the way?).
