I don't know about you, but in my experience PR flacks seek to release information to influence the way it is reported. It's not a conspiracy. It's BAU. And why the flick would he need to seek validation of a report if he already knew it existed? As for links, I post on a phone. I wouldn't know how to do it if I tried. This is a fun place, not an academic forum. Frankly I think the whole case citation or academic referencing that people do here is to give the whole thing a seriousness and gravitas that just doesn't exist. Each to their own. Outside weather perhaps I don't think there's any highbrow discussion occurring here, and nor should there be.
