jamesrt: OK, not a headline issue; but I really wish they would get some of the basic skills right - like writing coherent sentences, for example.

Tonight's mockery, from this article:

One thousand monkeys sitting at one thousand typewriters could probably reproduce the complete works of Stuff'd or the Herald in about five minutes*, methinks. tongue-out

They used to report news, these days they are told to provide an experience to the readers. Much like comparing a non fiction book to a novel. As in focus on entertain, and not the boring facts.

Serious news finally.

 

 

From the article: "Some residents of Flotilla Place recieved (sic) a note last week"

 

Terrible when their editors can't even use a spell checker.
