amused but confused

Golden Rule #8 for young reporters: read the archives before you file. That might have saved Inside Cover in today’s West some egg on face. The reporter is “amused but confused” by a strange boat on the Swan earlier this month. If only she had read the West of December 15-16 2012, where Alex Forrest said an earlier report was one of his motoring highlights of the year – and found the information to clear up the confusion.

    I happened to read IC in a doctor’s waiting room the other day. I was astounded at how desperately lame it has become. Was I just younger and less discerning, or was it reasonably amusing about 15 years ago?
