Navy in town

Post by 69cutlass »

I just love castanet reporting. I don't know here on earth 3 zodiac style boats could be possibly be confused with pontoon boats but yet it's right there in the article. They may be made of aluminum and the "inflatable " portion is rigid but they are still base on the inflatable style of boats. [icon_lol2.gif] :up:

There was confusion because it seems like nobody hires actual journalists anymore that do any digging or looking up or verifying their own story.
Most Everything written seems to be riddled with inaccuracies and it seems even the editor has no clue half of the time and allows inaccuracies to be published. I can't count the number of times I have written into castanet numerous times pointing out obvious inaccuracies that a school child would be able to point out which completely changed the meaning of the story

Yes. Thank you. I know zodiac is a brand. I don't know why I couldn't think of the RIB.

30 sec on Google would help them look the professional that they are trying to portray
