Journalism's Throes of Death

It's hard to believe that this sort of tripe gets published. With all that is transpiring in SA right now, the appearance of this piece makes me shake my head. Heres the opening:

An Indian helicopter dropping food and water over the remote Andaman and Nicobar Islands has been attacked by tribesmen using bows and arrows.

The authorities are taking the attack as a sign that the tribes have not been wiped out. No! Really?
The report says that officials, whoever they might, be believe they survived by: Wait for it, deep breath: " Using age-old early warning systems."
Yup, impressive eh wot? Must be the system left by the Klingons. Read the whole BBC report here.

I nods to Drudge
