How Journalism Works

Wednesday 6 February: I write up following story for the Popbitch mailout -

>>Les not Led<<
The perils of being down with da kidz

Yesterday on the Telegraph website:
"Led Zeppelin to play Bonnaroo festival in US. The newly reunited Led Zeppelin are to follow up their hugely successful comeback concert in London with a performance at a festival in the United States.
"Lez, not Led Zeppelin to play Bonaroo in US."

(Lez Zepellin are an all-female lesbian tribute band)

Wednesday 13 February: I arrive at Private Eye to start work on next week's issue, and find an email from a reader who has cut and pasted the popbitch story and sent it in for us to follow up, with the following warning:
"From Popbitch - could be p*sh"
