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.

and:

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.
