It has come to my attention that college students enrolled at UAlbany have been cheating! The story was picked up by the region’s largest newspaper.

What does this have to do with accuracy in media?

Next time you’re watching teevee and you see a blatant mis-spelling when a slide goes over the air, or reading the paper, [examples here, here and here] remember, at least three people looked at it and approved it before it was broadcast! Yes, all three either were too busy or too stupid (i.e. they cheated in school and in college too) to correct the error!
