Beacon typos let reader down

by Beacon Staff • March 18, 2009

It's hard to pick up iThe Beacon/i these days and not be embarrassed by the amount of blatant spelling, grammatical and typographical errors.

I don't for a second doubt the intelligence of iBeacon/i writers and editors, which means that the only explanation for these errors occurring so consistently is laziness.

To quote a typo in a pull quote in the March 5 opinion section: "Rediciulous."

Film major/i

iEditor's note: For the record, we did misspell ridiculous in the March 5 issue, but we spelled it "rediculous [sic]," not "rediciulous [sic]." We regret the error./i
