Morning News Needs To Buy a “T”

By Tim Rogers |

An alert FrontBurnervian points us to this editorial in the paper. It is headlined: “Harnett Helps Reform Effort by Signing Onto Eyewitness Bill.” The problem with that is Rep. Will Hartnett usually spells his last name with three “t”s. What’s even harder to understand about that mistake is that the editorial spells the name six times “Harnett” and twice as “Hartnett.” That’s how it goes online anyway. In the printed version, the paper gets his name right in the headline and in two other instances but then misspells it in six others.

Hey, it happens. You forget a “t.” But how do you forget it and then remember it from one sentence to the next?
