Editing and proofreading are the perfect combination to avoid the kind of grammatical error like this one from Yahoo! Style:
Nothing in this photo caption on Yahoo! Style hits the right note or strikes a chord with me:
I’m embarrassed for the writer. She managed to screw up a common expression in two ways: The expression is “hit the right note” or “strike a chord” (but she can’t even use the correct homophone in the latter). It’s followed in the same sentence with a mismatched subject and verb. And to prove that she’s not just grammatically and verbally impaired, she shows that she knows little about the subject of this mess by misspelling Céline. I’ve read high school newspapers that are better written and edited than this.
Someone at Yahoo! Style should turn in her keyboard and look for another line of work, preferably one not involving writing:
If you’re wondering whom this article is about, you’re not alone. It’s about Leslie Williams or Leslie Williamson. Or maybe someone else entirely. Getting the name of your subject right seems to me to be a basic principle of writing. Also, familiarity with basic grammar (like the ability to match a verb to its subject) would also seem to be a requirement of a journalist. Except at Yahoo!. (For those of you who are curious, the photographer is Leslie Williamson. At least the writer got it right once.)
