breaking broken stories

After all The Australian's bleating about "breaking real stories and adding to society's pool of knowledge" the other day, I was amused to read this line in a story last night:

"Max Bowen, manager of the Iron Duke Hotel at the corner of Botany Road and McEvoy Street, told SMH Online that he ran outside after hearing the crash and saw the mother covering her daughter." (my emphasis)

You wouldn't be feeding off a Fairfax story there would you, News Ltd?
