FOX News Grammar Watch

things the Fox News spellchecker cannot detect:

"Jailed Track Star Asks Asks For Help From President"

stuff that would get a junior-high yearbook editor fired, or at least a B- in the class.

...but this isn't a junior-high yearbook, this is a nationally-televised grown-up news network.

i would say that they're in too much of a rush to catch mistakes but with all of the endless re-hashing of news items throughout the day that i see i can't say they have a justification to stand on that particular leg.

I would say that designating fox news as “grown up kid” grade is dubious in the highest.
