After devoting yesterday’s front cover

After devoting yesterday’s front cover to the uprising in Basra that didn’t happen (or at least not on anything like the scale that was reported), the Daily Telegraph devotes today’s cover to the counter-attack by the Republican Guard consisting of 1000 tanks and armoured vehicles.
Ooops. Seems that is wrong as well. Apparently the Republican Guard are still dug in, and the armoured column near Basra consisted of probably not more than ten vehicles, according to the reporting I’ve seen.
Doesn’t look like the Telegraph even attempts to verify any of its stories before running them, does it?
