Whatever happened to the policy of refusing to comment on an 'ongoing investigation'?
Or does that only apply when Big Brother's being investigated?
This story was zipped around the globe with inflated statistics and inflammatory quotes before the "Slaughter of AT LEAST 120 caribous" turned out to be nine questionable kills in a legal hunt.
Mark Twain warned:
"A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes."
