Earlier this week Malo Luafutu, better known as Scribe was featured heavily in the news after he failed to show up for a court appearance. This was reported as breaking news across many outlets, but by that afternoon, Scribe had handed himself in and the matter was more or less resolved. Was it breaking news or did the media overreact? Earlier in the week I spoke to Mediawatch’s Colin Peacock to get his opinion.
