Bad headline

Clinton campaign says not conceeding as race nears end

hillary-160.jpgLearn to spell! I really didn’t expect this from Reuters. Doesn’t anybody even use SpellCheck? Shame on you for letting this error through – on a headline no less!

We spelled conceding properly on most versions of this story, but this error was introduced in editing the headline for online use. Lots of people noticed: GBU Editor

To err is human.

However, this is mostly a case of the spirit and not the letter.

That Clinton refused to concede for so long, and to have conducted a morally reprehensible campaign that hurt a lot of people, is the main thing behind this typo riven headline.

Wrong spelling – sure.

Now get over it or get a life, Bryant! ;-)
