Literally Illiterate

Antony Loewenstein on immigration detention centres:
Last week’s ABC TV 4 Corners, on the mental trauma suffered by refugees inside Australia’s immigration detention centre network, was a devastating portrait of dysfunction. We are literally breeding individuals who are going mad, if not worse.
Loewenstein is literally the sort of writer that wouldn't make it past a ninth grade English exam. But he's good enough for 'our ABC' and Crikey.

Despite numerous corrections after publishing Loewenstein (who simply made things up), Crikey apparently haven't learned from past mistakes. Are Crikey really that desperate for content?

Suggest you click on the above links and read the articles while Crikey can still afford the web hosting.
