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.

Amazing that muggles should have their own even-more-rita-than-rita skeeter hard at work to sabotage Harry! I wish WB would sue them too, bella vita.

The Sun is and always has been nothing more than a tabloid.

I KNEW she had gotten a new job! And in the Muggle world, too! No one would HAVE her, in the Wizarding world after her last little stunt…at least I hope not. What now? A “Tell All” book…like some other muggles, we know? YIKES! It’s a TABLOID folks…who else would have the audacity to write such drivel? Or to publish it. Of course we KNOW they always check their sources!, Right? You’d almost think it WAS ‘Rita Skeeter’, huh?

@ Budgie, and anyone else: If it already hasn’t happened, it’s only a matter of time, before the ‘Enquirer’ and the other “rags” over here, print it! Get the word out, folks! As Jaymie Brooks and I’m sure many others have said: It’s too late. The damage has bben done! We need to help WB. Like them or not, the fandom should at least TRY to stem this crap!
