Now the illiteracy is spreading to the serious channels

So I can just about take the illiteracy on CBS Action – the clue is in the title (it's not 'CBS Literati') and it's not like they're paying anyone there more than tuppence ha'penny an hour anyway.

But now it's spread to the BBC and the homonym is far worse than a mere typo in this case.

Okay, fair enough. It's probably someone typing at high speed, trying to keep up with the people speaking. I can take that, too.

But CNN? What is the matter with you?

"Colorodo Springs"? In "Colorodo"? What's the matter with you people? Where did you learn that?

Allowable comments

You can leave just about any kind of comment you like. You can argue, suggest I am (or anyone else is) wrong, leaving general messages of love – anything. However, you absolutely can't leave messages that attack other commenters (or me), are simple variations of "your review sucks" or that are misogynistic, racist, homophobic, etc: your comment will either be edited or deleted and you'll be barred from leaving any further comments. We want to keep it civil here.


You can hide a spoiler by putting <spoiler> before it and </spoiler> after it. Hover over a spoiler to reveal it!
