Even Weird Al Gets It

Dear WEAR ABC 3 News,

Please get a new proofreader. The mistakes found in your headlines are atrocious. It's embarrassing. I realize that we are human and mistakes happen every once in a while.

Every once in a while.

Here are some errors I've spotted in the past month:

Cetner & Desk
Ouch! Two mistakes in one headline. 
Rockefeller has an "observation desk"? That's news to me.

You know the song "Don't Cry for Me Argentina"? I'm pretty sure "Argintina" is crying right now.

This article talks about a young man who tragically passed. He is an airman. Airmen is plural.

Smack my head. C-O-L-L-A-P-S-E-S.

That's five errors too many. Is it sad that I stalk your Facebook page just to look for errors? If you need some help, consult the American Heritage Dictionary and Garner's Modern American Usage.

Even Weird Al gets it.
