Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Star Jones and a pronoun

Someone must have been in a hurry to publish this article on Yahoo! Shine. There was no time to look up the actual name of the co-host of “The View,” so the writer just made up a first and last name:

mccarthy 1

The woman’s name is Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

At least the writer got a bit closer when hammering out Star Jones (though she’s sticking with Hasselback):

mccarthy 2

And there was no time for a grammar check to ensure that all pronouns agree with their antecedent — or at the very least have an antecedent:

mccarthy 3
