The video associated with it is the WORST piece of 'journalism/television' I have ever watched/listened to! 99% of what is said is a complete fabrication and untruth.

That deserves a complaint!

I think Steve is complaining more about the report that they cut up the squid and showed pictures of the smaller damaged animal being disected to corroborate their fabrication. It appears that the photographers turned in the film and someone not present wrote the script.
