English Language XIII

Flee - to move quickly, speed away,  take flight. 

Anna Ramdass of the Daily Express writes that Panday was forced to 'flee' the Red House yesterday.     

But further down the article she writes, "He then gently made his way through the crowd and disappeared in a blink of an eye."

So which is it? Did he flee, or simply left? Was he in danger or risk that he had to run away, or was he complying with the law and left as instructed?

I wish some of these reporters would learn English, and then apply it accurately when they attempt to delude the population.
