In the Church Times, Andrew Brown does what he does best; writes about journalists and journalism. Towards the end of a fine piece on Rowan Williams' recent bad press, he says:

"By the time that Dr Williams rose to speak on Monday, the outline of a defence was clear. He had been brutally and unfairly attacked for things he never said. What the press had done was an assault on the very possibility of nuanced discussion - and this is true. But it is much more important and and just as true that he was brutally and fairly attacked for things that he did, in fact, say, and quite probably meant."
