Uh.. Is this article a babelfish translation or what?

I have to agree. This is one confusing article. Is the English language really that difficult for "professional" journalists to comprehend??

Whew! I was thinking that I lost the ability to read and comprehend until the “babblefish” question.

Journalism is no longer a profession - it is a joke.

They tell a story the way an excited 4-year old might:

"Um...There was fight...and there was this guy...he was in a movie...and there was fight...and this other guy said Juggernaut...And then he went to the hospital...Oh. And this one guy? He got hit in the face? And you know what??? He got arrested!!!"

AP articles always seem to me like a series of isolated facts jumbled together. It would do them good to read over what they have and do a little cutting and pasting.
