> This is an excellent story

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 [1], and collected clarifications have even been published in book form [2].

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 guardian.readers@theguardian.com

Hope that helps!

Haha by "screenshotting is pointless" I meant that capturing a funny moment for posterity is pointless since it'll probably be there for years to come. But yes the whole endeavour was pointless when you think about it.

My apologies for mis-reading you.

I have a bee in my bonnet about (PR) people who send me images of things when I have to retype the contents ;-)
