Evidence-free storytelling today demonizing Russia (surprise!):

Numerous security sources say the hit squad was probably made up of existing or former GRU agents not known to MI6 who may even have followed Yulia from Moscow to London on March 3.

Big blustering headline seems a lot more sure of itself:

Revealed: How ‘Putin’s spy agency’ hit-squad ‘including a woman’ carried out whirlwind 30-hour Novichok mission to poison the Skripals

But, of course, this wonderful database called Political Film Blog has compelling evidence that the poison wasn’t even “Novichok” the fabled Russian terror, but “BZ,” which Britain and NATO have.

 Swiss lab says ‘BZ toxin’ used in Salisbury, not produced in Russia, was in US & UK service

The term “BZ” does not appear in the Daily Mail storytelling, except in the comments section. They ignore contrary evidence, a clear breach of journalistic ethics. All they are doing is stenography, printing whatever the spies at MI6 tell them to print. None of their own alleged evidence is shown to readers, none. The photos are ornaments.

Looks a whole lot like fake news.
