The malicious twisting of the stories about Arsenal’s finances are a case in point.

Of course I have no insight into the situation, and know nothing about the rights or wrongs of the case. But since most sports editors know nothing about the rights and wrongs of cases and that doesn’t stop them commenting like mad, so I’ll say a word or two.
It is, it seems, all about “financial irregularities”.

Payment of money for stories maybe?
One interesting point is that the journalist concerned, a “MrHorton” is known to be a fan of a so-called “football team” known as “West Ham”
