London’s Evening Standard
tells us the exciting story of an 88-year-old Korean War vet in London who stopped a gang during its attack on a woman. But as usual, we get no data on the attackers or the victim.

Nice story. But nowhere does it divulge anything about these attackers. Did the reporter ask Nixon? Or the victim? Or police? Who knows?
This unintentionally amusing note adorns the end: “Anyone with information is asked to call police in Camden via 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
Problem is, readers have no information to report because the newspaper didn’t provide any. Granted, “anyone with information” likely witnessed the crime. But what about anyone who might report the gang based on a description in the newspaper?

As usual, we may assume the “thugs” are likely “Asian youths,” meaning Muslims, until told otherwise.
