Bridget Jones and Renee Zellweger mistreated

What’s worse than misspelling the name of a movie? Misspelling the name of the movie’s star. Yahoo! Movies managed to do both:


The movie is “Bridget Jones’s Diary,” and its star is Renee Zellweger.


Dr. Hood’s wrong

Yahoo! TV gave Dr. Hood a little something extra:


Sorry. I don’t believe a word you’ve written

There are so many errors in this article on Yahoo! Shine that it has no credibility with me. But it didn’t take the misspellings, grammatical gaffes, and typos to convince me that it’s not a credible source. All it took was this paragraph:


No, it’s not the inclusion of conducting instead of conducted. It’s the name of the organization that conducted the survey. It is the National Campaign to PREVENT Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy. Of all the boneheaded mistakes a writer could make, changing the name of an organization that tries to prevent teen pregnancy to one that supports it has to be the worst.

In lesser crimes against the language, there’s the misused new in the place of its homophone knew:


The typo here (how did that get by a spell checker?) and the redundant others people:


Finally, the incorrect these, the missing are, the missing comma after Hey, and the lowercase mom and dad:


All nitpicky mistakes in the shadow of one monumental error.
