Crappy copies

leave a comment »

When Forbes.com writes something as awful as “It didn’t used to be this way” in its copy, you know the world of copy editing has really gone to the dogs. I used to scream at the errors that the edit desk used to make even on Reuters and AP copies, thinking that they were making the mistakes, but after having gone through the originals, I can only shake my head in disbelief. It is a really sad state of affairs.
