Sniffing out the spin

The McCann's have got quite a spin operation going. The Telegraph reports that:
Kate and Gerry McCann's legal team has contacted American lawyers over a case where key sniffer dog evidence was thrown out of court in the hope that it may help them fight any charges that they were involved in the killing of their daughter.
Another example of a paper allowing someone a free hit under the cloak of anonymity. This isn't a difficult one to work out:
A source close to the McCanns' solicitors said the smell on Mrs McCann could be explained by being in contact with corpses while working as a GP.
It's hard to see how this bit of spin deserves having the "source" protected. It's not even a new argument.
