That's not fair. The Inq is a decent enough rag; and Mike Magee (who
also founded the Register) is apparently an OK bloke.

What the Inquirer is not is the whole, complete, and unvarnished
truth. It's a tabloid site, and includes speculation, rumour and "we
heard $foo from $bar". It holds gossip; some of which is correct and
some of which isn't.

Gideon.
