Tasty tautology from a TAS cherry grower on ABC's Landline - "an exciting, new innovation".

Old innovations are so yesterday!

The excitement is palpable. It’s this week...yes, this week...THIS WEEK!!!!

But I don’t understand the second last sentence and the sudden change of tense and topic.

‘He’s having lunch this week...two months later he visited the bell show’? Wtf? Was that sentence a cut and paste mishap?

It would have made more sense if Declan the sub-sub-sub-editor hadn't madly pasted the sentence about "$150 for two courses, waiter, bring me a bucket" after the other past tense one, where Malcy goes to see the Range Crawssin'.

Police were called to [redacted] Street at 8:12pm where they found a woman seriously injured being treated by paramedics.
She wasn't too bad till they got her on the stretcher.
