"Forced" Queensland flood rescue

An interesting choice of words at Fairfax:
Queensland mining giant Clive Palmer was forced to use his private helicopter to pluck up to 60 people from treacherous floodwaters in and around his horse stud in south-east Queensland.
Palmer didn't want to waste the fuel but the armed pilot was adamant.

Clive, the begrudging hero.

I thought the same thing when I read it. Pretty "clumsy" use of the word. What sort of subbing do they have these days?

After the water has gone down, Mr. Palmer should vigorously demand an apology for this sick bit of reporting.
