Busty and the shocking truth about fake news

busty idolIt’s Friday again, so, of course, for all you lucky readers, that means only one thing, it’s Busty time! Google Analytics doesn’t lie you know, well, not much apparently, and the fact is there are at least half a dozen of you out there who can’t wait for my musings.
But, dear readers, I’m afraid there is a large cloud looming on the horizon. And, for once, I’m not talking about my esteemed boss and his ferocious alcohol-induced mood swings. (Of course, as anyone who has had the “pleasure” of lunching him will recognise, you never quite know which way he’s going to go; “nice Charlie” or “nasty Charlie”.)
No Busty fans, I’m talking about something far more serious, something which could change the face of Decision Marketing forever and to quote that well known criminal, bankrupt and former Tory MP Jonathan Aitken, it has a lot to do with “the simple sword of truth and the trusty shield of British fair play”.
So, what is this threat you may ask, is Busty finally signing up to battle against Section 40 of the Crime and Courts Act 2013, rushed into law after the Leveson Inquiry, which means the press will be forced to pay the other side’s legal costs, even if they win, when they are sued for libel?
Er, not quite, I’m a bit more concerned about the new fight against fake news. I mean, what’s a girl to do, as one of the sisterhood once sang, “do you want the truth or something beautiful?”
Call me old fashioned but if I can’t make this shit up, I’m screwed. Literally. And surely you wouldn’t want to see little ol’ Busty out on her ear would you?
Now I would start an online petition, but I don’t really need the publicity. Suffice to say, is there any chance that we could just keep my fake news to ourselves? After all, where would you go to get your Friday fix without me?
(Answers on a postcard please, I am trying to keep Royal Mail happy x)
