(not satire – it’s Murdoch’s hacks)

The Sun included Labour MP for Manchester Central Lucy Powell in its list of ’10 laziest MPs’ today based on her voting record in the House of Commons.

The Murdoch rag then quickly had to backtrack and tweet an apology after realising she has in fact been on maternity leave and has been working from her constituency for a couple of months rather than travelling down to Westminster:

Ms Powell is quite rightly demanding an apology from the newspaper in print – which we all know is not going to happen.

Anyone know how much Murdoch hacks get paid for being so inept and amateurish they can’t even manage to check basic facts before they print a so-called news story?

Because whatever it is – it’s too bloody much.
