‘Heroine epidemic’ uncovered by North Carolina newspaper

The good thing about publishing online is that you can easily make corrections to simple things like typos. The bad thing is you can also make stealth edits that alter the entire meaning of your piece and hope no one notices.

Pity the poor copy editor at one of the remaining print newspapers; once it’s in print, it’s in print forever. For example, readers of the Observer News Enterprise in North Carolina were treated this spring to a front-page story about a “heroine epidemic” plaguing Catawba County. We thought it might be a story about concerned mothersfighting drug trafficking, but no, it was just a misspelling.

Hold off on selling your home and moving to Catawba County; it might not be what you expected.

‘Best typo of the day!’ Michelle Malkin scores sweet interview, gets huge promotion

It’s a red-letter day for Twitchy founder Michelle Malkin! Check out this scoop from Big Journalism:


It’s like double prizes! And what makes this extra-awesome is that if Al Sharpton were to actually try to interview Malkin, he’d be even more tongue-tied and flustered than usual.

Yep. Let’s just say things would not end well for Al.

Hope for that interview we much.

Meanwhile, some tweeters quite like the idea of First Lady Michelle Malkin:


Well, yeah. That goes without saying.

True dat! But there are others still who think Malkin should aim even higher:

Too bad she has no intention of getting anywhere near the D.C. cesspool. Can’t say we blame her, heh.

In the meantime:




Breitbart.com’s Ben Shapiro, the man behind the typo, weighed in:
