Reporting old news

NZPA reports that the government is moving to ban the perro de presa canario dog breed. The story is obviously based on Government Motion #1 on today's Order Paper - but what the story doesn't mention is that that motion was lodged on 25 June 2008, and the select committee report approving it [PDF] was released on 21 July 2008. Slow news day, perhaps?
