VA,

It's not journalism. It's the internet.

There's no more downside to poor grammar than there is to lack of factual accuracy. There are whole websites that do nothing more than repeat rumors as fact. Their "sources" are just the sort of sniveling knuckleheads you're talking about.

What's amazing is that, in what's left of the actual media, people are still pilloried for embellishing. Like Brian Williams and his made up helicopter story or Bill O'Reilly and his fake Falklands war memories. Considering this stuff is just personal puffery, and not supposed to be actual reporting, it seems almost quaint.

Spelling and grammar is over rated.

What in the name of all that is holy is going on with journalism all of a sudden? I do not refer to biased or "yellow" journalism (which has been going on for much longer) but rather "journalism" that looks like it was written by a 14-year old using autocorrect with no proofreading whatsoever.

I see perfectly serious articles being written with f-bombs (not quotations) and absolutely horrendous grammar, along with typos galore. I am most certainly not the King of the Eruditian Empire but I could wipe the floor with half of them, I am certain.

I can't believe people get to write this utter crap that would have earned me an F in high school English class. If there is any proofreading at all, I imagine it is being conducted during a frat party using an iPhone.

Ms. BigDuke, I think they hooked up in some snort of good guy-gal/Bat Shit Crazy SF poly thing and are living happily ever after at the Neverland Ranch.

Snort, I dunno. I fluked Philosophy 101, but I do remember DeCartes theory of Non-Monogamy; I swing, therefore, I am...which is a slight contrast from Buckaroo Banzai's theory of No Matter where you go, there you are.

JW if BT need more coffee?
