Whut Hapened to Copy Editurs… Mayor Keno?

I’ve ben notacing moore and moore typo’s in newspapers of late.

I’m hardly one to really talk… as I can’t tell the difference between their and there halve/half the thyme.

I don’t consider my blog anything more then a place to rant and rave and provide some information for others.

I’m always ranting on Newspapers… It’s probably because I was never a decent enough writer to get hired by one ;) Well… I haven’t ever really applied for one… but I know that my typing and grammar sucks.

There isn’t much excuse for a major newspaper to miss the spelling of our own newspaper Mayor. I can understand that the news copy already went out, but there online content they could at least update.

Here’s today’s example:

…Takaba recognized that Keno ordered a hiring freeze and creating a new position would be contrary…

Just because KENO is a word and it doesn’t get corrected by spell check… you would think they could at least get our own Mayors name correct.

What happened to Copy Editors?

  1. I am a proofreader/copy editor. The newspapers don’t want us, they rely on spell check, period. Consequently, I work online, editing medical transcription, for a company based in Manila. The errors I see (and hear) daily in print and on the radio and TV are appalling and make me crazy. You know how I jumped on devise vs. device in your post about the UHH bombings. It’s not just Hawai’i, it’s all of the U.S., and it’s getting worse. I don’t know why the schools no longer seem to be teaching or how to rectify that but something clearly needs to be done, and fast.

    Damon – I need to figure out how to ban people who are so good at spelling… my site becomes an embarrassment at thymes. (just teasing)

  2. Might want to email their webmaster on that for a fix. As for the print edition….

    Damon – Nah… if it was any company other then Stephens (or if someone else was still the webmaster there), I might think about it.. Let them Err there way out of business on their own.

  3. Uh, make that “to misspell the name of our own mayor,” right? haha
