I am not going to bring up names, and I do not claim to hold a degree in English Lit., however the straw has finally been heaped upon the camels back. What I am working my way around to is the terrible spelling errors and grammatical mistakes that seem to be croping up in our local publication. "Dynamic Dou"? Really !!!?
Can't spell a three letter word? I quit the paper years ago when they showed they where the puppet of Ford Motor Company during the Visteon rape and pillage. But, a few months ago I began to subscribe again. Now I have to drop it again because it has gotten to a point I now proof read every locally generated line for erors. I can't even focus on the articles. Typeo's by amatures on this site are expected, even outright lack of skills certianly, but not a periodical of public record. I am out.

Sadly, I agree. Don't know how these kinds of errors occur with the existence of spell checker. They obviously don't proof read. And it's not just the constant typos and poor grammar, it seems every other issue has a correction of reporting errors and an apology. It's an embarrassment.

They make these kinds of errors because they hire the dregs of the journalistic world. They are either just out of High School and didn't even major in English. Or they graduated from College and couldn't cut it anywhere else at a legitimate paper.

They last numskull they hired wasn't even a graduate. Then you have a farmer Daryl Smith, that was a Keebler Elf in a previous life, that has the personality of a autistic 12 year old.

Thad Lewis is leaving the paper for another job locally. Mike Selke got tired of their BS and went to WIFE. Connie Gribbins does a good job, but they only let her do the fluff stories. The one smart thing they did was get rid of Huffered.

It's gone from barely adequate, to bad, to worse and now it's barely legible! They need to dump G.M. Kelly Pierce because she isn't here 90% of the time.

Yes, you are right VillIan but we are not being paid with expectations of correctness. Oops, guess maybe they aren't either.

What is happening is the paper is made in Michigan now. What is written and proofed here is butchered in Michigan. I don't see it getting better as long as paper is made and laid out else where. I questioned something in last week's paper so I went down there and they showed me on their computer the story that was sent to Michigan and low and behold it was correct. Those pea for brains Michigan losers are ruining the paper.
Give it a few years and the world will not have newspapers.

Are they not sent back a blue-line proof (it may be called something different now) for final sign-off before printing?

Why can't a town print it's own dammed paper anymore? Soon it'll be on paper made in China and printed in Mexico!

I would like to know who it is that you are saying is the under graduate? Also in your text you kind of gave away that you must work at the news examiner too, considering your talking about Kelly and how she isn't here 90% of the time? Now how would you know that if you do not work there exactly? Kind of stupid to right crap on here about people when it sounds perfectly clear that you work there. I don't work there. I don't even work in this town. But I do know that on the editors side it is Daryl, Thad, Connie, and Bob. So who is this other your talking about since you know so much about the newspaper. You must be another one of the idiots also.

I have never seen anything good come out of Michigan. Isn't Mayor Liarnerd Urbscum from Michigan? Well that confirms my suspicions.

How can it be called the "News Examiner" when they don't report the news? Also, I get tired of reading about what's going on in Brookvile and Cambridge City--who gives a $hit?? This is CONNERSVILLE!

When you get one out of the machine out front, will you have to press 2 for the English version?

Don't be so hard on them you guys. They're all we've got, and I know they try, but, yeah, Michigan seems to be a problem.
