Don’t you think that would be annoying?

I wonder if Shayne Currie meant he was lowering the standards at The Herald when he told us boldly that standards were going to change.

I have already blogged about there headline fail yesterday. But check out this fail from the online survey they had running.

Wouldn’t be really annoying having a first aid kid taking up valuable space in your vehicle?

It is bad enough having kids in the back seat whining on about “Are we there yet?” without having a first aid kid there as well.

    “I  have already blogged about there headline fail yesterday.”

    Hmm… people in glasshouses…

    It isn’t a spelling error (so won’t be picked up by spell-check) , and I agree they should have higher standards with all their resources, but we all have a lapse occasionally.

    Slight difference. WO types an article in a mad rush then moves on to the next. Paid journalists labour for hours over their articles, have proof readers and Editors to check and improve their work. Therefore a spelling mistake from them is a massive fail.

      You think a journalist laboured for hours over this online poll which was then checked by proof readers and editors?

      Um, Mrs WO think you will find that MR Wo gets “paid” for his blogging. Probably a tad more than the subby who let this thru:-)

    I could point out at least half dozen errors in the Herald every single day. They are useless pricks for supposed professionals.

    Wow an editing error. Quick alert Sideswipe.
