Judge's words meaningless to reporter

Here's the lede on a very bad piece of reporting:

Slang-strewn rap lyrics should be treated as a foreign language, according to a new ruling from a British High Court Judge.

Here's what the Judge actually said,
The judge said, "This led to the faintly surreal experience of three gentlemen in horsehair wigs examining the meaning of such words as 'mish mish man' and 'shizzle my nizzle'."
He added, "The words of the rap, although in a form of English, were for practical purposes a foreign language."
