In New York, job winners will tweet from toilets

They won a contest that included aspiring actors, students and even a businessman hoping to seed his enterprise for the jobs to greet and chat with tourists and hoards of holiday shoppers visiting the Manhattan restrooms.

In this article the author uses the word “hoards” when he should have used the word “hordes”.

I quit reading CNN.com because of the large number of spelling and grammar errors. And now I’m starting to notice a few errors on Reuters as well. If these errors aren’t being caught, then it really makes me wonder about your fact checking as well.
