How many does it take?

How many careless mistakes does it take before you give up on a news site and decide to get your info somewhere else? Does a missing word in a photo caption make you question the credibility of the entire article?

Does a wayward, arbitrary capital letter in a caption have you questioning the site’s reliability?

Or does it take more? Like an extraneous word here:

for to sign up news

or here:

a better a pres news

or a grammatical gaffe:

bombing kill news

For me, all it takes is a look at the site’s name or URL. If it’s Yahoo! News (or http://news.yahoo.com/), that’s enough for me. I don’t trust anything I read, especially if it’s written by Yahoo! staffers.
