It took a whole team of Yahoo! Style “editors” to come up with this statement:
David Letterman’s departure from his late night show has been documented on the Web (including Yahoo!), in traditional newspapers and magazines, on TV and on the radio. So how did the brain trust at Yahoo! Style screw this up so badly?
Mr. Letterman did not spend 33 years as the host of “The Late Night Show.” In fact, there is no program called “The Late Night Show.” He spent 11 years hosting “Late Night with David Letterman” followed by 22 years at the helm of “The Late Show with David Letterman.”
Maybe the kids who wrote this are just too young to stay up after 10 o’clock. Maybe someone will teach them to read and show them how to do a Google search. Maybe someone at Yahoo! will hold them to a higher standard than “make up any information you want.” Maybe the Earth will crash into the sun.
