5 scathing reactions to this announcement of June Whitfields death a full year late
Telegraph columnist Allison Pearson demonstrated her complete inability to follow even the most basic investigation when she went viral for smearing the family whose young child was photographed sleeping on a hospital floor.
On Monday evening, she followed that up with this major scoop.
June was a beloved actress, so we can see why someone might be moved by her loss. In fact, there was only one real problem with it …
Allison Pearson here, with her finger on the pulse again.
Unfortunately it's June Whitfield's pulse, because this story is a fucking year old. https://t.co/PT5kvL4wcm

So, the lovely June trended on her anniversary, but mostly because of people ripping Allison Pearson’s apparently non-existent journalistic skills and just generally taking the piss.
These five were beautifully scathing.
If Allison Pearson's only just found out about June Whitfield's death she's going to be beside herself when she finds out why Terry Wogan hasn't been on the radio much lately.

Alison Pearson's inability as evidenced by the June Whitfield gaff to check basic facts and report the truth would be worrying if she were a journalist with her own column and a large readership. Oh shit…

Shame about The Beatles splitting up like that

We always lose good people this time of the year. For example, this time last year we lost June Whitfield. So sorry to hear that this year we've lost June Whitfield too. So sad.

As @KateofTarragon noted,
She did a lot of great things, but Im pretty sure even June Whitfield couldnt die twice.
