This is a freaking headline? Cable news is utter trash but I already knew that.

There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

I'd estimate that at least 50% of "news" reported on by the mainstream news media is unimportant fluff.

And that is the fundamental problem right there: the 24/7 news cycle.

Imagine a person being forced to talk non-stop for 24 hours every day. They will relatively quickly run out of important things to say!

So let's set this straight...

A guy with the last name of Celli-bird found a bird that had travelled 8000 miles across the ocean, and now Australia wants to kill the bird, found by a man with the last name of bird.

Shoot I saw that after just 12 hours a day for a month while on post in the Middle East. Takes even less time for some people. But, I'd take any of those Marines I served with talking nonsense than these clowns on TV any day of the week. At least they were sometimes funny and usually were self aware enough to know they were young and dumb.

wait what ? why kill the animal if they are atemping to capture it ? if he made that far, he deserve his genes to survive, send it back.
if concern is zoonosis, just shoot it and be done with it.
