When George Clooney wed Amal Alamuddin in September 2014, The Washington Post, which normally is fairly well edited, published this on-line headline, as well as emailing it out to thousands of subscribers:
From this, we can conclude that:
- The Washington Post has only one editor for both their website and their mailing lists, and that one person does not know how to read.
- The Washington Post, in addition to their recent announcement about ending many pension benefits, also dismissed anyone who knew anything about copy-editing.
- Least likely: Amal Alamuddin really has married a string of eligible bachelors.
The Washington Post didn’t even acknowledge my questions about the headline.
