Trump’d up charges

Are charges that Yahoo! News editors are careless just trumped up charges?

Maybe it’s only a typo and the editor really meant trumped. Or Trump’s.

Continually making an error

The folks at Yahoo! seem to make the same mistake continually. This time it’s Yahoo! News scribes who can’t tell the difference between continuously and continually:

I wasn’t in the Senate to verify this for myself, but I’m guessin’ that the legislation wasn’t being amended ceaselessly, without stop. But it may have been continually amended.

This appears to be wrong

One reader’s confidence in Yahoo! News appears to be shaken when the editors can’t match a singular subject (confidence) with the correct verb:

Maybe the editor will laywer-up

From the home page Yahoo! News, the world’s most trusted news source:

How many pilots?

When a typo appears on Yahoo! News (at least I hope it’s just a typo), it can leave me scratching my head:

After dusting the dandruff off my keyboard, I have to ask: How many pilots were doin’ the asking? One pilot asks passengers to pray? Or two or more pilots ask passengers to pray?

I’m praying for an answer.

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.

A good time to stop

Yahoo! News makes a good case for stopping a search:

I suspect this is wrong

I’m not sure, but I think there’s an error in this headline from Yahoo! News:

Were there two London attacks, or were they suspected attacks? And what the heck was identified? I’m so confused. But so is the writer of this headline, I suspect.

Is there a letter missing?

Looks like there’s a letter missing in this headline from Yahoo! News:

I think they meant skycrapper.

Including an add’l character

The apostrophe has two uses: To show possession and to indicate the omission of letters or numerals. So, what letters or numbers did the Yahoo! News editor omit in this headline?

Actually, the editor added a letter: T. The common contraction of additional is add’l.
