Also it's funny to see the Guardian continue to live up to its "Grauniad" nickname once again - the FIRST non-headline sentence has "Iceland travel Euro 2016..." should be "Iceland travel to Euro 2016...". I once for fun kept a tumblr with screenshots of these but it became very boring because:
1. there's usually one glaringly obvious mistake in nearly every single article
2. they never seem to issue corrections, so screenshotting is pointless (this one's over half a year old)
3. they're otherwise a good paper/site, so it feels a bit harsh to point this out (even if it is just for fun)
Agreed: I highly recommend it.
> there's usually one glaringly obvious mistake in nearly every single article
An actual mistake or a typographical error? It compares very favorably to the error rate in Donald Trump tweets!
> they never seem to issue corrections,
The Guardian is famous for publishing a "Corrections & Clarifications" column , and collected clarifications have even been published in book form .
However, typographical errors are rarely included, though they do get corrected on the website.
> so screenshotting is pointless
Yes, screen-shotting is pointless. However, you can email the quoted line(s) and a link to the Guardian global readers' editor at email@example.com
Hope that helps!
I have a bee in my bonnet about (PR) people who send me images of things when I have to retype the contents ;-)
I regularly see Top Photos, Headlines, Captions and even whole paragraphs appear and disappear after a few hours.
I don't think that's true! A copy error is quite different from something one would expect to issue a correction for.
