Errors in newspapers anger readers

Posted on January 9, 2011


Readers of The Washington Post have been driven to despair by the amount of grammatical errors and typing mistakes in the newspaper over the last few weeks. Many have complained about mistakes made which have caused confusion for readers. One example occurred when the contents section of the newspaper listed a travel section, which wasn’t actually there. One reader complained about the typing errors, poor grammar and words which were spelled incorrectly. The reader who made the complaint said:

“It’s almost like a pre-final edition of the paper got released.”

Typing and spelling mistakes have become common in newspapers, with many of the errors not being corrected by the editors before printing. The mistakes are thought to be partially caused by the reduction in newsroom staff, although carelessness has played a large role in the mishaps.

Constant errors such as this can cause anger and confusion among readers, resulting in many not bothering to read the publication again. If you have a similar problem with your website, you will face the same angry reaction and lose many of your website visitors. A lack of staff can be a problem, but it is essential that you have a grammatically correct website which is easy to read and follow. If you choose to outsource content writing to a reputable company, you can ensure that your website is full of accurate, grammatically perfect articles.

It is not always easy to write and publish articles on a frequent basis which are interesting, original and error free, especially if writing isn’t your speciality or English isn’t your first language. A professional writer will improve your website with articulate articles which will interest readers.
