Check your facts

Ziggy Marley back in Australia.

This was one of the headline news items on Nine-MSN this evening.

Obviously a very slow news day. So much so, that I decided to read the article.

Talk about misleading.

Here are some verbatim quotes from the Nine-MSN piece:

"...the Jamaican-born artist will bring his soulful tunes to Australia next month."

That's right, next month.

"...the 38-year-old told AAP from his home in California."

In California?

I don't care how hard up for news they are at Nine-MSN, there's no excuse for making stuff up just to fill space.
