Tele should cut down on the sensationalism

IS it just me who has noticed the Belfast Telegraph's tendency to over-exaggerate stories with sensationalised headlines?

A recent front-page headline (April 10) claimed 'Fury at Throne scenes', the article suggesting that there had been media "uproar" about the graphic scenes in the new series of Game Of Thrones.

The headline, well back on page 11, reduced this claim to 'Online anger'. Not a single complaint had been made to Ofcom, the TV watchdog, the article pointed out.
