How much lower can they go?

I see the Sunday Independent sunk to new depths yesterday when they claimed that former Fianna Fáil TD Liam Lawlor, who died in a car crash in Moscow over the weekend was travelling with a prostitute at the time. The paper had no evidence for this claim and such reckless reporting can only have added to the family's pain at this terrible time. Most decent people respect the phrase "Don't speak ill of the dead" espicially in the immediate aftermath of a death but it seems that the Sindo see it as nothing other than a chance to sell papers.
