Standard model for corporate media lies?

There are many instances where the mainstream media, the likes of the Herald Sun publication, practice (deliberately?) inaccurate reporting with regards to specific topics in order to follow a particular government or corporate agenda.

To the average reader, these 'inaccurate' articles go unnoticed, unless of course you are fluent with regards to the topic or were an eyewitness to the reported on event.

One could call a tabloid version of, where the article from the illustration below is taken.

The headline states "Cops allegedly raped teen in van".

In the next sentence, the newspaper publication states that;
"Two police officers have been charged with raping a young female..."

So, let's  use a search engine to find the definition of alleged;

alleged əˈlɛdʒd/ adjective
adjective: alleged

said, without proof, to have taken place or to have a specified illegal or undesirable quality.

So, when two cops have been charged, this happened in a court of law with the necessary proof to do so, therefore it is no longer "alleged" that they committed this crime, it's a FACT.

Absolutely appalling 'alleged' journalism.
