Too many spelling mistakes in news items
I've been noticing this for a long time, but thought I'd finally mention it today. On the front page of Yahoo News and within various articles I read, I regularly notice either very basic spelling mistakes or the wrong words being used all together. In one of today's headlines it says, "Decent in United Ranks?" It should actually read "Dissent"!! Two totally different meanings. I was totally confused as I didn't know what the headline was trying to say. Decent means 'honest or virtuous' whereas dissent means 'conflict or disagreement'. It just doesn't seem very professional seeing these kinds of errors in the media, so perhaps a bit more attention to detail or proof reading needs to take place. Kind regards
They're more than likely employing 10 year olds to write their 'news'.....such as it is.
