Noah Emmerich: Don’t go all postal!

I can see how anyone could make this mistake:

Really, it’s just a typo, for sure. Anyone could have done that. After all, both the H key and the K key appear on the same keyboard. So, don’t go all postal on the writer for Yahoo! Movies.

Lea Michele: Wrong on both counts

How do you get this bad? How can you misspell both the first and last name of star like Lea Michele and still hold your job?

Possibly no one at Yahoo! Movies cares about the credibility of the site or respects their readers enough to do a bit of research or proofreading.
