Your newspaper needs an editor!
« on: February 02, 2012, 11:56:38 AM »

The AJC is AWFUL. They used to have DAILY mistakes on their home page. It hasn't been awful lately, but they still offer up some insane WHOOPS every once in a while.

From their Entertainment section:
First lady pushes Jay Leno to eat healthy hoods
Jay ate the veggies. First lady Michelle Obama cajoled Jay Leno into nibbling on apples, sweet potato fries and a pizza made with eggplant, green peppers and zucchini on the "Tonight Show," breaking his long-held aversion for all-things-healthy in his diet.

I had to read this three times before I found the mistake. Sigh.

I had to read the non-mistake part 3 times just to understand what they were trying to say.

The NKY Enquirer misspelled "school" in a print headline a few weeks ago, adding an extra "o". Ouch.

BTW - the error is STILL there!!! I tried to find an email for the Entertainment editor, but had no luck. I thought about emailing the main editor, but FUCK 'EM.

The extra "o" is because school is super-cooooool.
