When I read the story claiming an SBS team had been parachuted into the sea etc, etc, I thought it sounded like someone had just made a story up using the public details of the case of the Mearsk Alabama.

Surely journalistics standards haven't fallen so low they just make it up? And the comments by readers on the websites of certain papers, FFS! They make my want to hit them with a brick. Why is everyone so keen to jump on an anti Navy bandwagon?

Knowing several journalists personally quite well, I would suggest that the answer to your question is Yes!
