Yet more speling - RTE this time


It goes on. Last time it was the Irish Times. Now we find that the national broadcaster is at it as well. What are testemonies? How can these august bodies make such terrible spelling mistakes? What software do they use for spell checking?

It may seem to you that we are getting carried away by our pickiness, but these are organisations which use words as tools of trade. These errors are not schoolboy mistakes.

We deserve more better journalism.

Maybe sub-editors no longer exist?

'testemonies' is what you get if you sell your balls ...... the price can go up as well as down depending on whether you make a balls up or have reached adolescence .......
