A cyclist crashed into a " stationary vehicle " and the headline in nice bold letters is
CYCLIST'S THROAT INJURED IN 4WD CRASH.

No doubt it will be the 4WD owners fault even though the car was parked !!

Truckster, that's a little over the top mate.

BAN PARKED 4WD's!

That's more like it, can't scoop everyone up into the same basket now can we!?

Mark,

That piece of journalistic trash must just about win first prize for inciting placid people to perform nasty things.

Noticed that no journalist cretin had the intestinal fortitude to affix their name to the article.

Thanks for that, I used thier contact page to send them a note of what I thought. Nicely of course.Thanks this sort of spotting is useful if we let them know we read and we will not buy thier papers etc.

Yep, me too:

""Cyclist's throat injury in 4WD crash"
What a complete load of tripe. Can you and your editor please pull his finger out of his ass and stop harrassing innocent 4wd owners with bad publicity. This storey has to be one of the most retarted efforts and gaining readers interest I have ever seen.
I for one will be not be reading your pathetic attempts and news anymore."

Do they care if one reader doesn't buy a paper?

Seems to me that "I'll be doing my best to ensure that the company I work for doesn't place adds with your paper" would possibly cause them to think.
