That’s quite an ingenious spelling on the Yahoo! front page! And by that I mean wrong spelling:
Perhaps if the writer for the Yahoo! front page knew how to pronounce Linda Ronstadt’s name, we wouldn’t have been subjected to this egregious misspelling:
Perhaps if the writer had even a smidgen of journalistic integrity, he or she would have Googled the name before publishing this embarrassment.
Yep, you read that right. Catherine, duchess of Cambridge, is really a product of the Netherlands, kinda like Gouda and tulips:
It seems odd to me that we’re just learning this now. But we have the geniuses at Yahoo! Movies to thank for this startling and erroneous news.
You’d think that a name like Kit Harington would be easy to spell. And maybe it is — for everyone except the writer for Yahoo! Movies, who misspells it here:
But the writer has no trouble spelling Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. If you can spell that, shouldn’t you be able to spell Kit Harington?
It’s the Jamies on Yahoo! Sports!
Unfortunately, that Jamies should be Jameis Winston.
My goodness, the spelling on Yahoo! Sports has really deteriorated! Even the headlines include at least one misspelled word:
If you’re not good at proofreading, perhaps you should employ a spell-checker. That’s my advice to the writer of this headline on Yahoo! Sports:
What’s in a name? If it’s on Yahoo!, most likely a misspelling.
From Yahoo! omg!, this is supposed to be Mark Wahlberg:
and Nicki Minaj:
From Yahoo! Shine, this is allegedly Elizabeth Osborne:
On Yahoo! TV, this is the writer’s pathetic attempt at Kenan Thompson:
Yahoo! Sports offers up this attempt at Jimmie Johnson:
and Jeremy Lin:
And from Yahoo! Music, this is nearly Eminem:
It’s the frist photos of Zac Efron on yahoo.com!
You have to admire the persistence of the writers for Yahoo! News. When they make a mistake, they stick with it, even if it’s easily avoided, like the misspelling of Bismarck on the News home page:
Not ones to cower to the nazis who insist on correct spelling, the journalists repeat their version of the capital of North Dakota in a headline:
and in the actual article:
Like I always say, if you can’t be right, at least be consistent.
