More media illiteracy - CTV Toronto

One of Walt's pet peeves is the steadily decreasing standard of literacy in the lamestream media. You would think that those who describe themselves as communications professionals would strive to use proper English in presenting the "news", even if it costs them a bit of money to employ competent editors, sub-editors and proofreaders. You would be wrong.

It may be, though, that lack of money for professional help is the problem at Canada's CTV network. Here's a screen shot of a page that appeared on the Toronto flagship station's website this morning.

Cringeworthy, isn't it? But remember, these folks are smarter than you are. That's why they feel themselves qualified to tell you how to vote, even how to think.

Note from Ed.: I am available for hire, willing to relocate. Require salary just a trifle higher than what I get from Walt. A dollar a day plus expenses should do it. Offers to the usual address.
