msnbc.com: Let Eric Clapton edit your next “cocain” story

The story: Will source of Whitney Houston’s cocaine be revealed? (msnbc.com 3-26-12)

The mistake: “She also referred to him as a “runner boy,” meaning he bought cocain and supplied it to Houston.”

The Copy Vigilante says: The word “cocaine” appears five times in this story, including the headline. It’s not a terribly difficult word to spell but msnbc.com missed the silent ‘e’ in the above sentence. Sigh, another misspelled word in a major news story. Ugly.
