Here are two reasons I’d never believe anything I read on Yahoo! Travel. The first is something every American should know:
The Statue of Liberty never struck a pose on Ellis Island. She first appeared on Bedloe’s Island, which was later renamed Liberty Island, where she remains.
That normally would be enough for me to threaten to poke out my eyes with a number 2 pencil. But, I continued reading the article, which is purportedly about American models of the past. So, how did the writer screw up Peggy Moffitt’s name so badly — every freakin’ time she mentioned her?
Here’s what I think: The writer is so damned sure of her superior knowledge that she didn’t bother to look up any facts. And without an editor to do a little fact-checking, you get an article like this.
