Last night was not a good one for our friends at WIN News.
They were Media Watch’s Front Page story for their inability to understand a simple joke being used by the Lifesavers to raise awareness of the risks of drowning.
Despite not giving their reporter James Goodwin enough time to cover the event properly and realise the joke WIN were blaming the lifesavers in their pathetic explanation for the cockup:
“The Royal Life Saving Society of the ACT has apologised for misleading the Canberra community over a fictitious proposal to redevelop Yarralumla Beach. Executive Officer Peter Castle today admitted the story was a bizarre, some would say irresponsible and stupid, stunt to try and raise awareness of drownings.
WIN News, significantly dumber than 2CC.
