In other news, apparently Tupperware was found on the moon, where the moon is Titan, a moon of Saturn, and Tupperware is propylene.
Dickens is not the only person who gets phone-it-in journalism and ridiculous sensationalism.
Another interesting thing is that news was never really better than it is now. I've collected a lot of pictures from old newspapers as a part of another hobby and the captions are usually wrong, oversimplified, or have to do with something other than the thing that's depicted in the picture. For example, a picture of a tomb excavation in Egypt corresponding with an article on the excavation will mention exodus, even if the event is nowhere near exodus in the timeline. They just figure that the Bible grabs eyes better than archaeology.
