Sometimes the mistakes are egregious. But other times they’re just sort of random. (For example, pointing out the misspelling of “border patrol” in the Houston Chronicle. It’s a mistake for sure, but don’t those errors happen a hundred times a day?) I normally don’t care about Gawker’s copy-editing mistakes, however there was a boner on Jezebel a few months ago that deserves mentioning:
On December 1st, they wished happy birthday to Bette Midler. She was turning 67.
Then on March 19th they wished her happy birthday again!
