Sarcasm in journalism

I do like it when journalists respond fairly, but sarcastically, to comments by some PR spokesperson who is clearly talking complete rot.

Adrian Pitches' response on BBC News online to a suggestion that wild birds might be to blame for the Bird Flu outbreak in Bernard Matthews' Turkey gulag is priceless:

Presumably, a kamikaze duck had plunged head-first down a ventilation shaft into the sealed hangars containing turkeys.
