find the lack of proper English in the news/blogs appalling? It drives me crazy!!!
Yesterday I read a news report from the AP that was so full of typos and errors I noted the writer’s name, to make sure I never read their pieces again.
Do people seriously think this doesn’t matter? I don’t know about you, but I do make judgments about who I read, how much, or whether I’ll read something — based on how well it’s written.
I’m hardly a wonderful writer, but I do proofread my pieces. I also go back & fix any errors I find.
What caused this rant? I just found another news item with “passed” and “past” mixed up. Sigh.
