No, failing to do some digging to find out even some preliminary information is poor journalism. The story was posted three days after the accident and you're suggesting that the police didn't even have a guess?

I'm pretty much always this obnoxious. Just ask anyone. But you seem to think that journalists are psychic, or should be, or that the world works like it does on TV. None of which is true. The report actually had a lot of information, but it was also clear that authorities had not finished their investigation, only a couple days in, perhaps because they were very busy dealing with the much more urgent matter of a resulting oil spill, as detailed in the article. Journalists do not control the people they seek to get information from, and can't make them give up information they either don't have or are unwilling to share. In real life, an incident like this might take a good while to figure out. It's possible even the crew of the grain carrier still didn't know -- yes, even two or three days later.

I'm saying you need to get over yourself, and I mean it. If you deal with the world based on unrealistic expectations, the world is going to slap you back. Over and over, until you get it.

According to the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, the investigation is still ongoing (new window). Man, the ships crashed in 2010; how long do these things take?
 
2012-03-31 10:07:20 PM  
its not just that the boat got crushed. there doesnt appear to be any reason the bigger boat should have been sailing in that direction or anywhere near that pier thing.

I wonder if they would have been better off leaving the larger ship smashed into the smaller one, instead of immediately backing off?

Seems that's what turned a collision into a collision and sinking.

The investigation "ended" three months ago - per my buddy at Australia's AQIS (import quarantine) division. No conclusions, or should I say "lack of evidence".

They pulled a single survivor out of a goddam drainage pipe nearby, half burned and jibbering about having "seen the devil". Turns out what everyone thought was related to a giant drug sale was actually the elaborate assassination of a witness to a crime by some ultra-high-profile drug kingpin. Dude died in the hospital, but he managed to dictate a decent description of the evil patriarch himself to a sketch artist via a translator.

8 million + in damages and all they have to show for it is a sketch of a mysterious, almost-mythical crime boss.

Crazy!

According to the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, the investigation is still ongoing (new window).

Yields this gem:

At about 1400 on 8 October 2010, the Liberian registered bulk carrier Grand Rodosi entered Port Lincoln with a harbour pilot on board. At about 1448, while the ship was making its final turn towards the Port Lincoln Pier, with two tugs in attendance, it collided with the port side of the fishing vessel Apollo S that was berthed alongside the pier. Apollo S was severely damaged and, as a result, sank. Grand Rodosi sustained minor damage and berthed with the assistance of the two tugs.

On 16 February 2012, the draft ATSB safety report into this incident was sent to Directly Interested Parties. After their comments have been received back, the ATSB will finalise the report before releasing it publically.

A report has not yet been released for this investigation.


Let's see here:

Fair weather
Calm seas
Full daylight
A harbor pilot on board
two tugs helping
A captain on board

And *nobody* saw that farking dock?

There were no crew on the S. Apollo at the time or you'd have heard a lot more about this crash.

Is this what the Costa Concordia captain did before he joined the cruise ships?

Don't think they backed off, think the ship hit the pier and rebounded and in any case there was no saving that tuna boat

In a way it's good the boat was there. I can only assume that the damage to both the pier and the tanker would have been much greater had the fishing boat not been there.

No, but apparently Pelvic Splanchnic Ganglion expects that journalists make shiat up when they don't have all the facts regarding a situation. That's really the only reason I can think of that they would call it "poor journalism" simply because the article failed to contain information that the journalists didn't have. So, I figured they were used to the Fox News way of doing things...run the story, embellish as needed when the facts are unavailable or inconvenient, and call it news.
