One thing is for certain. The state of language in journalism today is “frightning”, with no indication of “brightning” on the immediate horizon.

  1. I don’t get it. That article was quoting Dennis Hastert’s defense of DeLay. What’s the big deal?

    Do you expect us to not read the articles you link to?

  2. the writer mis-spelled “lightning” by adding an “e” in the middle. That’s the point of the post.

    I do see spelling errors all the time in copy from professional sources. I wouldn’t say that’s the worst failing of the modern media by any means but it is still depressing.
