What does it take to be a journalist for Yahoo! News? Not much. All you have to be able to do is read something written by someone else and then try to summarize it for the Yahoo! audience.
You don’t need to be able to spell. You can misspell the names of principals, like Vladimir Lenin:
You don’t need to have a grasp of multi-syllable words, like decapitating:
How do you remove a head from a stone head? Isn’t that, like, one head too many?
Fundreds? What’s that? Like, maybe a whimsical hairstyle preferred by Rastafarians? Or shorthand for “f**king hundreds”?
I guess if demo is short for demonstration, then this could make sense to someone who is spelling-impaired:
You could just copy a name from the news article you’re trying to recap, but you don’t have to. You can make up your own spelling of names like Vitali Klitschko:
and his brother Wladimir Klitschko (You can be confident that no one at Yahoo! cares about accuracy, so you can misspell Vitali again.)
