Their online stories never used to be this shabby.
"Genali GMC Sports Utility Vehicle" ?
"If you have any information, call police."
Which police department? Are we to assume only Southfield's? Got a phone number or are we to burden the 911 system?

WDIV's tech help must be new as well, lots of F-ups in the "lets go to video" or "lets talk to _________ who is at the scene"

It's a typo. It's not like we don't see them here and everywhere else in society. It's not an excuse but a reality of a rush rush society that wants to get the news out ASAP.

The intern was just trying to use aliteration. Keeping Anglo-Saxon poetic voice alive in America

WDIV is going down the tubes. That sportscaster that replaced Fred McCloud is just awful. "So, you guys lost the other night... What's up with that?!" "Is it hard to hold the football?"
WTF kind of questions are those?
Seems like the FoxAttitude of getting young, preferrable blonde females, qualified or not, on the air is spreading.
At least you can kind of navigate that Click On Detroit site now. I remember it being a real cluster---- last time I looked.

They must be reading DetroitYes. They have corrected the "Genali", but still have no number for the police.

That's what happens when you hire junk writers with no news sense and pay them crap salaries.

Journalists are getting completely sloppy. Check this out, where a reporter refers to a type of amphibian as "wormlike sicilians." Granted, not many people have heard of "caecilians" but if you were writing a story and Italians were lumped in with frogs and salamanders, wouldn't you think to ask?

WDIV laid off at least one employee from every department at the end of 2006, effective immediately. As a former employee there for 3 years, I can tell you we were honestly understaffed 4 years ago when i was on payroll. Every time someone leaves (for better work, better hours and a more pay) their job was "phased out"

The newspapers are the same way. Fucked-up grammar, misspellings, sloppy (or downright incorrect) usage, etc. If you can't, or won't, pay for competent editors, you shouldn't be in the publishing business. I can almost accept that stuff on the TV news, because it's "live," but it's a goddam shame, the way print journalism has fallen.
