I had posted a query on this forum bearing the title - A rarest case of child custudy. In that case the natural parents/claimants say that infant was born on 23rd and missed on 24th and was found in the field on 25th and it is the same infant. The police is saying that it is a different infant and they are showing a news in a daily paper published on 23rd reporting that infant was found in the field on 22nd. The court suspected as to how there could be a news on same day's news paper on which the infant was born.
In this context and in general a question arises as to what is evidenciary value of a news item in a news paper?
Further , does a report or discussion on a web site or blog stands on different footing?
