So Soon?

Today's examples are already booming! Rasta, a good friend of mine, encountered an example of poor writing in the media, this time at Alabama's ABC 33/40 website. She said, "The author has put double periods at the end of two sentences and in the quote from Doug Horst, she left out the letter "r" in the word "closer." Re-reading this would have caught the error." Thanks, Rasta!

Look up this link for a fine example of rotten grammar in a publicity write-up! http://www.hennepintheatretrust.org/events/craig-ferguson

About Ren

I have finally become so incensed by poor writing in the media that I've decided to create a blog detailing the errors that I find. Perhaps journalists will think about proofreading their work if they don't want to find themselves on here. If you see any examples, please e-mail them to me at r.tauman [at] gmail.com.

I don't expect the average person to be able to write well, but those who write for the public should at least know what they are doing.
