Puzzled?So was I.There are three stories with this in the headline on the BBC interactive text pages this morning (Page 380 if you're interested).It appears cutbacks include not employing editors with basic 'O' Level English
Which is a point I've made in a couple of threads in the last week or so.The standard of English exhibited on many news websites is appalling, it seems that in the rush to virtual print the sub-editor's desk is by-passed...
What is worse is that it is still there this morning.It would appear that none of the BBC's senior mangers, editors or any of the trustees have bothered to read this, or have not noticed anything wrong for two days.I have now responded to their oft repeated request for e-mails.
Several years ago I was so incensed by the typos in our local (free) paper I highlighted all I could find and sent the paper back to the editor. It has improved.
I've noticed poor English and spelling mistakes more and more recently. Not just from BBC media, but almost all major on line media sites. It seems that computer spell checkers are a better option than people, even if they don't always get it right.
No doubt we will get London Zoiz and Glasgow ZoiA!
Our local evening newspaper suffers the same fate on occasions.I blame the (ex)print proofer/reader or typesetter for all this ;o))
How about the Telegraph "Model talks a tumble" click hereNow I could see how somebody could Take a tumble, but Talk one ?
You often see captions below pictures on news sites that simply say "Insert caption here"
