Crikey, Crikey needs an editor

Interesting news from the northwest of Western Australia:
Crikey recently visited the area...
Crikey, or a semi-literate "journalist" in its employ, might have visited the Kimberley region but this doesn't prevent it being incorrectly described as "an expanse of desert". That's enough for a great big fail for this "investigation".

The "investigation" is littered with lots more errors and is very poorly written, at one point referring to an "evasion of privacy".

The investigative journalist who wrote this near-gibberish should do himself and the obviously editorless Crikey a favour by investigating the possibility of taking remedial English lessons.

Independent journalist = unemployed in this case.

Does he get paid for his 'work'?

Ant's past attempt at describing himself as an investigative journalist was also an embarrassing failure.

"about one hour by car from Broome along mostly red, dirt tracks"

Mostly red - even the black bits were red.

"footage shot by private security is handed over to the police and used against them in a court of law, all without proper accountability"

So... a "court of law" is not proper accountability?

Someone should be accountable for this article...

Hostile Environment Services are referred to throughout as HRS. This is hilarious.
