That “racy police blog” – where, exactly, is it online?
There’s been a mini media storm over the Hong Kong policewoman whose “racy” pictures of her colleagues pointing guns at each other and larking about, student ball-style, in a Kowloon cop-shop were splashed over the Hong Kong press, and then everywhere else.
But have a look at the coverage – like here, on the BBC – and you’ll notice a telling omission: the URL of the blog that is supposed to have started all this.
Without the source, this is just hearsay – the media reporting on what other media are saying, based on no real evidence except some unattributed photos on a Chinese web site. Could this just be a media hoax?Tweet
