What if the Ministry of Magic was twisting the truth and not telling the real story? Even as one of the few people who isn't a huge Harry Potter fan, this was entertaining.

The interesting thing, for me, is that this is a perfect example how how the media can bend the facts. If you have a collection of video footage of an event, and you have enough of it, you can edit it together to tell whatever story you want, just like in reality TV.
