I have learned two lessons during my many years as a journalist. One is that the media hunts as a pack, or herd if you prefer, and one major reason for that is that it is safer to run with the herd. Everyone goes in the same direction and if it turns out to be the wrong direction, well who can blame you?
The other lesson is that more often than not, the herd charges the wrong way.
