Very odd decision by the Sunday Telegraph today

Note which story the Telegraph has decided to put first and which second out of Mark Reckless and Brooks Newmark – and where RAF bombing Iraq features relative to Newmark too:

Sunday Telegraph frontpage - Reckless and Newmark

As I tweeted last night:

That’s a view reinforced by reading more of the story this morning, which sounds like a case of a media outlet setting out to attempt to entrap a range of MPs and then publishing a story about the one who turned out to be very foolish:

Several male Conservative MPs received attention from “Sophie Wittams” over the course of this summer, according to an archive of deleted tweets accessed by BuzzFeed.

Note who sent the first photo according to reports:

During a late-night chat with the undercover reporter, who had sent him an explicit picture supposedly of “Sophie”, Newmark asked for a more explicit picture.

Isn’t this called entrapment?
