Neither writer nor editor

Over at Yahoo! Style, neither the writer nor the editor has spotted this grammatical goof:

neither-have-released-sty

When two words are joined by neither…nor, the verb must agree with the word closer to it, which in this case is the singular Hadid, and the verb should be has released.
