The media much be laying those editors off.

I have noted a sharp increase in spelling errors in news reports recently.  That's to be expected in the blogosphere where there are no editors.  But here's an example from the Miami Herald's on-line edition:  (writing of Obama's drop in the polls)
"This will require him to find ways to either win back the middle or energize his base in ways that hasn't happened so farm" Miringoff said
I would have thought that any editor would have caught this.

So you've noticed it also? What is it with the editors...too distracted, too few?
Also, have you noticed that some of the stories seem to be disjointed; almost like they cut and paste without reading the whole article.
