Here’s what it’s like to be wrong on the home page of Yahoo! Style:

divorcee sty hp

Worst news site on the Web

If you’re looking for reliable news articles on the Web, skip anything written by Yahoo! News “journalists.” The mistakes they make would be laughable if they weren’t so horrifyingly inaccurate:

This is beyond horrible, it is beyond irresponsible.
