That Was One LOOOOOOONG July!

Has anyone else noticed how many typographical and grammatical errors there are on stories posted on the internet? I know I'm hardly one to talk, as I've published more than one typo/grammatical error on this blog. But, I don't have a large staff of copywriters and editors at my disposal, whereas the news sites that I read online are news giants ... particularly the one I grabbed the above screenshot from. The site that provided that screenshot is a huge, multinational organization, and they have more errors than all of the other sites I frequent combined!

I know it's nit-picky, but if the draft of this story had been given to a competent editor to proof, I'm sure they would have suggested " July of 2010, she was sentenced to 90 days in jail for breaching her parole."

There were less errors when the pages were assembled by hand with individual letters!
