CNN Headline: "CNN/Money: NYSE interim chairman excepts $1 salery"
Edited on Mon Sep-22-03 01:15 AM by Amerikav60
copied this headline exactly from their site.

http://www.cnn.com / (they may of course fix it before you click there)

2 major spelling errors. Not even typos, just bad spelling. And in the case of "excepts" vs. "accepts", a lack of knowledge about the language.

Now I see a lot of spelling errors on boards and blogs, but this seems a bit much. Don't they have people proofreading this stuff? Are they using 3rd graders to enter text on the website? Yikes.

3. Unreal
Hasn't been fixed as of right now.

That's just unreal. So much for professional integrity... (Well, we already knew CNN had no journalistic integrity, but this just proves it in a completely different way.)

Almost in disbelief

6. Remember poor Niger Innes
He was some kind of political functionary who got his first name mangled on CNN into a very nasty slur.

I've also seen at least one woman on a news program supposedly named "Paty" and an Amy spelled "Any".
