This article is hard to read/follow...

There's a reason for that. This aggregation is actually sort of a fake site, probably originating from Russia, China or some place like the Ukraine. These sites scrape (steal) articles from elsewhere (such as legit news organizations) and publish via artificial intelligence to serve ads on them. It's why the stories are often gibberish as humans didn't write the text or it's written by someone in a basement who doesn't actually speak English. Honestly, this sort of stuff is probably funded by cyber ops to get clickbait money off google ads and then fund disinformation campaigns or organized crime.

I'm guessing it was written by Evan Dudley.

I've read much better written articles in high school newspapers.

One of the first actions by the NEWS when it moved operations to Kentucky was to lay off all its editors. The writing quality since illustrates this decision.
