Cover-up story and cover stories

If you only read one piece about the Hillsborough inquest and the way the police, politicians and the media colluded to smear and blame supporters for the disaster, make it David Conn's meticulously detailed, shocking, emotive and downright superb article for the Guardian.

If you choose to look for coverage in either the Sun or the Times, good luck - Murdoch's two rags left the stories off the front pages (initially, at least). As Gary Lineker has commented on Twitter, "As disgusting as it is unsurprising. They have no shame."
