Two errors in the Tribune (online) during the last several days. Far be it from me to claim that I’m a perfect speller, but if my stock in trade is words and the accurate conveyance of facts, well…gosh, shouldn’t they just try a little bit harder to proofread every little detail? Heck, they can even put me on the payroll to check that kind of stuff! Click the thumbnails below to see full-size.
In the first example, the young Airman who drowned last week is identified as a “missile chief” – when in fact he was a CHEF. One letter, but it makes a difference.
And in this example, the Trib is describing a young lady from Great Falls who appeared on-stage during the “American Idol” television show, and the organization that she is now qualified to join is referred to as the “American Federal of Television and Radio Artists” – when in fact it is an American FEDERATION of Television and Radio Artists (easily confirmed with Google).
