The story: Alleged American ISIS Defector Held in Iraq (cbsnews.com 3-14-16)
The mistakes: “The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad told CBS News it could not confirm the detention of an Americna, indicating it had only recently become aware of the reports.”
“U.S. intelligence officials believe about a dozen American citizens have going to fight with ISIS in Iraq and Syria.”
The Copy Vigilante says: Donald Trump supporters would probably get really mad at the first error in this article. How the hell can we make America great again if cbsnews.com can’t even spell American?! As for the second error, that’s just sloppy editing. Sigh, another missing word in the middle of a sentence in an article on a mainstream news website.
Here are some of the Copy Vigilante’s favorite books: Philip K. Dick – Solar Lottery, Edward Rutherfurd – Paris: The Novel and Dr. Hunter S. Thompson – Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ’72
The headline: Trump And Clinton Feast As 12 States Vote
The mistake: This awful headline!
The Copy Vigilante says: First, my apologies for the cheesy pic of the newspaper but their online headline changes often. Ugghh! This might be the worst headline ever! Since when has Super Tuesday been held on Thanksgiving?! And what are they feasting on? Voters? Voting machines? Hanging chads?
Here are some of the Copy Vigilante’s favorite books: Dr. Hunter S. Thompson – Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ’72, Pierre Boulle – Planet of the Apes and Joe Knetsch – Florida’s Seminole Wars, 1817-1858 (The Making of America)
