  1. It’s taught, but no one seems to learn it or care anymore. I could make a comment a la “MLB God Bless America” style, but I won’t.

  2. Hello,

    I teach here in GF. We do definitely teach grammar. However, many millennials grew up in the “slang” age where there was virtually no disconnect between spoken and written language. Most of us say “might of” versus “might have”, and many people write how they speak. The value of the written word depends upon the person doing the writing. Many people do not even realize what is grammatically incorrect. I love grading papers and proof reading, as do my students. It is a very interactive and important skill to understand.

    Sadly, we live in a “fast” news world where the quickest person is the “best”. When news stations rush to be first, typos and other grammatically incorrect problems are abundant. However, KRTV doesn’t have that problem. We all know which local news outlets take their time to edit and edit again. Being fast shouldn’t be as important as being accurate.

    Just my two cents.
