I think you've missed the additional layer of this story; the reason Coleen Rooney was particularly pissed off that the stories were leaked to the Sun was due to the stories they ran after the Hillsborough disaster, where they accused injured football supporters of stealing from the dead, crushed bodies.

I hate it though when people think that they have a platform and a responsibility to use it. It starts out well meaning enough, but so often becomes self important and becomes as hateful as the people on the other side of the line.

Fact checking would do this podcast some good. I love this podcast but they seem to take unverified accounts as proof of facts.
