Do Your Job

Posted on Mon, Jan 24, 2011 at 11:15 AM

Is there a connection between the steady decline in academic standards and the poor journalistic skills evident in so very many online news articles? Spelling mistakes, omitted words, inane repetition and incomplete sentences abound. No one is perfect but this occurs on a daily basis. I expect more from people who get paid to write. Just imagine if every professional turned out half-assed work e.g. surgeons, mechanics, food preparers, bankers, engineers, architects, pilots et al performing inadequately on the job. Journalistic integrity is at stake and the editors are asleep at the controls. —Expects Professionalism
