Reviewers/critics are regularly accused of dishonesty/agenda-keeping and scolded for factual errors and typos, but they certainly hold no monopoly on such things. Two recent press releases for Belgian (or mainly-Belgian) albums prove this.

From the first: "In the attractive Music Village, Brussels' only real jazz club." Note that this so-called jazz blog does not link to the city's only real jazz club...
