Let’s at least get the name right, msnbc.com!

The story: American in Cuban prison: ‘Get me the hell out of here’ (msnbc.com 4-20-12)


The mistake:Alan Gross: Get me the hell out of here” (It’s in the caption in the video.)

“Get me the hell out of here,” Brian Gross said… (It’s in the second paragraph of the body copy.)

The Copy Vigilante says: What’s in a name? Everything! If you can’t get the name of the subject of the article right, why should I believe anything else in the article? And I certainly should not have to google this person to find out his actual name!
