COM: ABC Linguistic Morons strike again
Hohohohoho, ABC makes me want to be a talk show host.
In their latest screw-up, ABC news shows a video of a bus driver lecturing kids about gay rights and bigotry. The story itself is disturbing enough from many angles, but ABC screws it up with a simple misspelling. Let's hope the parties involved got it right.
What the driver says is this: "If you can't believe in tolerance toward one another, you don't belong here."
ABC used subtitles on the video that translate it this way: "If you can't believe intolerance toward one another, you don't belong here."
Way to go ABC.
[update 3 June 2010] Thank you CBS for not letting ABC one-up you in goofy mistakes this week:
"A source close to Detroit Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga told CBS News he has been told Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig will not reverse a botched umpire's call that caused Galarraga a perfect game Wednesday night. "
