Daily Star is sorry for Grand Theft Auto Raoul Moat blunder

Journalism at its best

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Last week the Daily Star published the sensational scoop that Rockstar Games was prepping Grand Theft Auto Rothbury, inspired by the murderer Raoul Moat.

It was a hoax of course, but it would be much too kind to describe the Star as a victim. The paper compounded its error by mocking up a fake cover (see here) and by soliciting a response from the grandmother of Moat's girlfriend.

Today the Star issued a long, grovelling apology. Among other thing, the paper - motto: Simply The Best 7 Days a Week- admits it didn't check up the story with Rockstar Games, a mistake, for which it must pay substantial damages.

Rockstar is donating the windfall to charity.
