This is the standard of journalism that is deemed acceptable in our local paper ……. ???
I saw this and immediately thought it was an article about a magistrate that had gone on a rampage and about the man that stood up to him.
The following, pulled from the same article, is another example of the awkward phrasing that regularly appears in News articles.

We regularly hear complaints, from employers, that our schools are not supplying new hire candidates with adequate standards of education. Isn’t it about time that our media mouth pieces set a decent example.
