Why we need journalistsMay 11, 2009
I was reminded why we need professional journalists today. Someone in the office phoned in to say Asda in Bedminster was closed and was swarming with police.
The police press office had no details, which seemed odd, so I drove down to find out what was going on.
Asda were indeed closed, but because they were having some building work done. The ‘police’ were Asda trainees directing traffic in hi-vis tabards.
We should be grateful we don’t always rely on gossip!
