Ian O'Doherty: Ever get the feeling you've been had?

As someone who suffers from a terminal and quite awkward case of Lazyitis, I have had to make a stipulation in my contract that I don't have to do any research.

I know it's a rather sad admission to make from a hack but it's true.

Instead, I rely on grown-up journalists giving me stories; they're usually motivated by a mixture of pity and contempt by my inability to master even the basics of our trade, but I don't care -- as long as I get free stories, I'll continue to be the same useless lump as always.
