Aren't journalists trained to double-check their sources before all else? Certainly http://www.bbc.co.uk/academy/news/vi...2012_induction, according to JTS Director Claire Prosser at a recent BBC event in Bristol University.
But perhaps not the YBW ones. They're photographers or summat, innit?

Some photographers & writers - as in moi - do check things and try to get accurate figures whenever they appear, not just allowing ourselves to be spoon fed BS !
On that subject my boat has been reviewed by both PBO and Sailing Today; I was very impressed by David Harding of PBO, he ran a tape measure over everything and disregarded the brochure measurements.
He turned up with a camera and I'd organised our club rescue boat with a chum driving to act as a camera ship when required.
As a contrast Sailing Today turned up with a huge chartered RIB, excellent pro' photographer Rick Buettner and about 10 hangers on from the office !
Photo by Rick; ( yes if one studies the telltales we were stalled, Duncan Kent had done a crash-tack for the camera, looks pretty and reasonably dramatic as intended though I think ).

I assumed it was a typo and an extra zero had appeared on the end. Even 10000 would have been a good number.
