Gawker mentioned a British newspaper left in a dummy headline…which made it to print last week! OUCH:
Hey man, did you see that story “Headline headghgh” in the paper today?
Anyway, we see more and more typos in the LA Times everyday now…and little mistakes all over the internet via online media — remember our post about the Yahoo News Image Fail?
It’s sad to see the direct effects of decreasing editorial staff in the newsroom. I’m just thinking that employers toss resumes with a typo… so is the public thinking if a newspaper can’t get the headline right, is it doing the reporting properly? Are people less likely to read newspapers and magazines, holding the outlets accountable because of typos like these?
