Continue from my previous rant about grammatic error in a sentence, a mainstream news media fell shamelessly into this trap of unprofessional journalism.

Hmmm. There or their!

If your read further, you spot another bit of sentence that makes no sense what so ever. The part that goes "if the works are art of merely an act of vandalism", the more I read the more it seems to be "if the works are art or merely an act of vandalism".

I think it was meant to say "If the works of art are merely an act of vandalism." someone switched the words around =oP practical joke or just incompetency? who knows.
