Faulty reports on Royals are no specialty of republican-minded Australian journalists. British media give enough bad examples, as Marlene Eilers Koenig discovered:

"Daily Mail 'reporters' do not know how to report the news. They prefer (to)sensationalize a story, rather than provide actual facts. Daily Mail 'reporters' also have an unerring ability to ignore facts and eschew research. This is only enforced by many of the comments that follow such stories. Take a look at a story in today's Mail regarding a possible review of security measures for some of the younger royals. (Photo editors at the Mail make sure they find the most deleterious photos to accompany their stories.)"

Sounds very familiar in Aussie ears, doesn't it? Read the whole article here.

Marlene Eilers Koenig lives in Virginia, USA, is a librarian by profession - and also writes about royalty.
