Lack of convictions from tabloid stings

As some previous comments have pointed out, the record of tabloids for securing convictions rather than just headlines isn't great, as The Guardian has pointed out this week. That is one of the reasons why I believe they should leave it to the police - the public interest is best served by convictions rather than attention-grabbing headlines and photos. And here's another less conclusive case where Grobbelaar, Fashunu and Segars were accused of match fixing football matches in the 90s - they got off but The Sun was found not guilty of libel against Grobbelaar on appeal.

Leave it to the pros, journos.
