It's journalistic incorrectness gone mad!

To celebrate the fact that I've just returned from the Hazards 2007 conference in Manchester (a gathering of trade union health & safety reps from all over the country, and from every union imaginable) which was as usual inspiring- also to save you all from a tedious rant on my part as it's a subject I get excited about - here's a link to a TUC report from last October on "health & safety" myths in the tabloid press.

Question: is it more worrying that we have journalists prepared to print this sort of rubbish, or that we have a substantial part of the population (not by any means confined to the terminally dumb) prepared to believe it?
