I promise I won't continue to harp on this...

Those who know me will continue to say it's just because I'm a grammar bitch. Maybe so -- but I keep seeing things like the clip below and it's disturbing. I truly think it's a remnant of "being the first with the scoop" that all journalists are familiar with -- it was like this when I worked in a newsroom and I'm sure things haven't changed.

Except that what I wrote wasn't published instantly online - it came off a press on paper. And it was read by at least two editors before it was published -- my city editor and a copy editor.

The race to be first today results in embarrassing posts like this. Sigh.
