How WHAT works?

Um ... "how all for gadgets work" ... maybe "how all the gadgets work"?

What is a Possible Body?

What is a possible body? Someone reported a body was found on the beach, and it's being investigated. It will be a body or it will be something else, but someone reported a body was found on the beach, right?

Just Any Ole Preposition Will Work

This should be "for the" second time, not "in" the second time.

Just Two Little Words ...

Ripping pages out Quran, or out of a  Quran?

Just before that they got it right:

Doris Day, huh?

Later corrected, but still ... Doris Day - seriously?
and the correction, 21 minutes later:

Tenses, People, Tenses

Will find out. It's in the article that way, too.

Cheef? Got Spell-check?

OMG, "cheef"?! Spell-check would have caught that. Also "ouplan"? It's this way in the article, too. Sad.

Child boy?

What is a child boy? Maybe a boy child? Did they start to write child, then changed it to boy without removing child?
(I hope they find him.)

Singular/Plural issues

Singular/Plural issues ... basic Elementary School knowledge. "Samples test" or "Sample tests". It's wrong in the linked article's title, too. Turns out three samples were tested ...

Is that a new number?

What is a billonth?  Six words to proof, people ... six words. Even Spellcheck would have caught this one.

A Fire was Destroyed?

A fire was destroyed? A grill exploded and set a house on fire, but ...

Oh, @AP ...

Fed-up isn't hyphenated. Of all the accounts to make this boo-boo, AP?

It's basic conjugation

Starts petition. Only 11 words to proof ... how tough can this be?

Deceives? Detectives?

I think they meant detectives.

Didn't even spell-check

"following fatal" ... what? Crash? And describes is misspelled, too. Bonus! Eleven words, people, only eleven words to proof. You didn't even spell-check. Sigh.

Just one letter, people ...

Just one letter: isolated vs isolates. Picky, maybe, but there's only 10 words to proof. How difficult can this be?

Oh, Newsweek ...

It's bad enough I can only read five articles per month, but then you omit a teeny tiny word from a very short tweet:

"Marissa Mayer will 'limited time off'" -- will what limited time off? "take"? She'll "take limited time off"? Was that so difficult? Sheesh.
