4. trash "journalism" just might have consequences
Seriously, "The Evening Herald", "Sunday World".
These are trash tabloids not Journalism.

From the Guardian article:

"Detectives believe McCaffrey has been targeted because he wrote a number of articles recently about the sexual activities of the crime gang's boss, who is currently in jail. They said the gangster became "apoplectic with rage" over the reports and ordered a hit against McCaffrey. It is understood fellow inmates read the stories and started taunting him."
