Words that are meant to apply to a thorough investigation are applied to the mere sighting of what is not even hidden:
Despite smoking around the region’s hospitals and health centres being officially banned, we revealed that the practice remained widespread at the Royal Infirmary, with patients, their visitors and even NHS staff lighting up in clearly designated non-smoking areas, causing carcinogenic smoke to waft back into wards.We have no real need of press that describes the blatant non-observance of unenforceable laws as news, still less as an 'exposure', when stories are run about this issue on a regular basis all over the country. The only way to get people out of doorways is to provide somewhere more comfortable than a doorway, as many hospitals have learned (even if others keep trying to achieve the impossible).
When the BBC reports on the UK government's smoking cessation record, in what might as well have been lifted from a press release, Chris Snowdon steps forward with a more critical view, pointing out that the smoking cessation record is nowhere near the success it's claimed to be. Why can't the real newspapers do that kind of job?
