How bad is the reputation of the Daily Tattler?
Yellow journalism low ?

At least.

I think it's safe to say that the public was comfortable believing that the gargoyle sightings up to the end of "The Edge" were just robots being tested (or whatever) by Cyberbiotics or one of those Xanatos-owned companies. (That or a promotional stunt. I'm guessing this is left up to interpretation unless you want to clarify...)

So, was this still the cope out for reassurance that the public and the media used when the gargoyles were seen after "The Edge" up to when gargoyles became accepted as "real"? (I'm guessing this would be around the time when the Quarrymen were formed.)

Greg responds...

Aided by coverage in the Daily Tattler, they became urban myth.
