Fraught with errors

Here’s two excerpts from Yahoo! Sports‘ “Dirty Tackle” that are fraught with egregious problems, including the writer’s inability to choose the right word and the preferred spelling of a common word:

wrought 1

Though cancelation is not wrong (even though my spell checker thinks it is), the preferred spelling is with two Ls.

There’s that cancelation again. It’s followed by promotors, who must be people who like cars, because event organizers are promoters.

wrought 2

Those two paragraphs have two or three errors apiece (which is how you spell the word that means “each”). They’re fraught (not wrought) with errors.
