Irish Times Typo Shame


From today’s Irish Times:

“There are as many reasons for typos as there are actual errors: time pressure, inattention to detail, no teaching of grammar in schools, and the fact that lots of people have better things to fill their minds with than linguistic precision and rules.”

Translation: Our then management (some of them above) paid €50 million for a property website (owned by estate agents) just as the bubble (which we helped to inflate) was at bursting point. We’ve let some people go, standards have slipped and we are now reduced to writing disingenuous articles about how typos are more of an existential problem than a consequence of under-resourced newsrooms.
