Who do you trust?

Would you consider Yahoo! News a trustworthy source of information if the editors either don’t proofread or can’t spot an obvious typo in a headline?

The word they were going for is affluenza, a blend of affluence and influenza, which joined the pop culture lexicon in 2013 when it was used in the defense of an obnoxious teen charged with four counts of intoxication manslaughter.

    Not to be picky, but isn’t there also a single quotation mark before the word and a double quotation mark after the word?

    • Laura Says:

      It seems that there is a single quotation mark (or an apostrophe) before the word and a single straight quotation mark (or apostrophe) and a curly quotation mark after the word. There’s some crazy typo stuff going on.
