Rita Skeeter Writes for The Sun

Balderdash is our word of the day, as it turns out the story in the Sun from a few days ago regarding a possible second screening of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is false. WB has confirmed to Leaky that there was no "secret" second screening of the sixth Harry Potter movie held as was claimed. For in an effort that would no doubt make Rita Skeeter proud, The Sun engaged in a bit of creative writing with their piece, as the comments were obtained from an article seen on Aint it Cool regarding the actual test screening held last fall.

Bravo, The Sun. I would be ashamed to work for this rag.

The best use for the Sun is for lighting the fire or cleaning the windows. I’ve never bought a copy in my life, and now you know why.

Good. It’s officially false! Actually, I’m more worried about this negative publicity and the movie’s image than the movie itself right now.

Well we all know how unreliable The Sun has been in the past. Glad the rumor was squashed!

It’s amazing and quite scary how often the media reports things that aren’t even vaguely true.

The Sun should go back to reporting about Bat Boy and aliens.
If there is cuts to the movie hopefully they’re just saving those scenes for the next two movies.

I’m pretty sure that Rita secretly writes every article in The Sun.

At least she puts a little effort into her work, if you’re going to make up a story you might as well go the whole way and exaggerate until your ears fall off.
