Dear Google News

Just to let you know: there's a difference between news and editorials. If I go to your site to browse headlines, then I expect to find news articles. If I wanted badly written op-ed pieces, I'd just read my own blog.

The bad grammar and misspellings is what really gets to me. Is it just me or is it getting worse? It's not just on the net either, it's in the print paper also.

Well, the kind of thing I'm talking about is on Memorial Day, they had a headline under U.S. News: "Dead not Honored on Memorial Day." (or something like that) I was interested in what the NEWS story was. Unfortunately, it was just an anti Bush/Iraq rant- which, is of course, their prerogative to put up- but don't have it under a news heading. They've done this sort of thing before- the point is they should have an editorial heading instead of listing them as news stories.

i'm seeing that more and more in newspapers...front page "news" that's in reality, spin and propaganda.

rayne: that kills me too! these are supposed to be college-educated folks who've presumably majored in journalism!

the printed word...did they not learn how that works?
