Update: Oil spill-PM the winner

COMMENT: ABC have replied to our complaint about the amount of oil split by the Shen Neng 1.
It turns out it was a typo! Perhaps a case of fat finger syndrome?

Thank you for your email regarding the PM report Oil from stranded Chinese coal carrier to be transferred to a barge.
The broadcast accurately stated that the 950 tonnes of oil on board the Chinese carrier would be transferred into a barge bunker.  When transcribing the report for the website, it was incorrectly typed in as 950, 000 tonnes.
An editor’s note has been attached to the transcript alerting the audience to this fact.

Yours sincerely
Audience and Consumer Affairs
