COM: Shame on national news services

journalistic editing, spelling, grammar and linguistic skills are at an all-time low as far as i'm concerned . . . and to think ABC is laying off 20 percent of its workforce . . .

thank you ABC for these:

Koenig's "Growing Pains" co-star, Tracey Gold, has also whethered the ups and downs of Hollywood. Gold rocketed to teen stardom after being cast as Carol Seaver in the series.


Moncayo fought her attacker, elbowing hard him in the nose. The shot made her assailant pause, allowing her to get out of his grasp and run away.

and i love this gem from CNN:

" . . . reimbursing transportation costs for parents whose end their children to parochial schools."

and here's a couple front page headlines from CBS:

"Is Ron Paul Neck in Neck With Obama in 2012?"

"Expets and Polls Show Increased Concern About Threats of Domestic Terror"

and NBC doesn't want to be outdone:

Taunting has caused an annual debate among college football players, coaches and fans, and last season’s big controversy stemmed from Georgia receiver A.J. Green receiving a 15-year personal foul penalty after he caught a go-ahead touchdown pass late in a game against LSU.

Agreed Tony.
I don't work in the media field anymore, but it kills me to see all the bad editing and one-sided stories put in print and on TV everyday.
