    While the article on psychopaths was interesting and I have no reason to doubt its accuracy, my experience with the Telegraph is that their ‘reporting’ is not to be trusted, especially when it comes to anything of a politically sensitive nature. Before accepting that any Telegraph story is accurate, check and double check it in the original sources. If there are no original sources, be exceedingly skeptical. I have seen too many Telegraph news stories which represent an information source as making claims which may be completely the opposite of those actually made by the source. Climate change/’Global warming’ stories are perhaps the most egregious examples, but any political ‘controversy’ is likely to have the reporting slanted or even twisted to fit the desired conclusion.
