Media Bias on Assisted Suicide Isn’t Just an American Phenomenon

This is unbelievable: A Scot newspaper, reporting on the Debbie Purdy case, states that the Lords gave Purdy’s husband permission to take his wife to Switzerland for suicide.  From the story:

The law prohibiting assisted suicide is set to be clarified after a woman with multiple sclerosis won a landmark victory that will allow her husband to help her end her life.

That isn’t only factually false, but the Lords made a point of stating that they were not making that ruling! So the question I continue to have in cases such as this, are they really that ignorant, do they just report off of press releases, or have they ceased to care about the truth?
