Take a look at this story
NHS ban medicine if you are 'too old' in new attack on Britain's elderly
So there's a ban, and it's made by the NHS, right?
Older patients would effectively be written off on the grounds that they no longer make a big enough financial contribution to society.
The Department of Health is demanding the changes in an attempt to cut the crippling NHS medicines bill.
So not a ban, and not from the NHS. And those are the opening paragraphs.
In the latest onslaught on the elderly, drug rationing body the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has admitted that ministers want workers who are still contributing to the economy to come first.
So it's ministers who want this. I wonder which ones. Also a nice use of 'admitted' suggesting that previously they had denied the fact, whereas they had been the ones to give this publicity.
The rest of the article is a recapitulation of previous Express articles.
Now this is an important story. And this is how a third-rate reporter on a fifth-rate newspaper handles it.
