In what is likely to be the worst bit of writing from a Yahoo! News staffer — and possibly the year’s worst writing by a professional anywhere — I feel silly pointing out the missing hyphen in high-profile. It’s the other errors that are egregious and a disgrace to Yahoo! and the writing profession.
It starts with the writer’s allegation that there was a trial on (yes, the writer said on) actual priest molesters:
Let’s be clear: No actual priests were molested. There was, however, a trial of priests accused of molestation.

And there’s still more! The “writer” should have removed of and paid more attention to the child development center. I don’t think we needed to be told that the football program was stripped of football victories. And we certainly didn’t need the out-and-out lies about Jerry Sandusky’s denials throughout the trial (he never spoke or testified during the trial) and his sentence (he faced a maximum of 442 years, but was sentenced to 60):
I don’t know who wrote this pile of crap. The article has no byline. Smart move.
