Typos in the Nuwz: Olympic Skating with Typos
If you’re like me you’ve been glued to NBC for the past week or so watching the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, B.C. One event that has particularly captured my attention is the men’s figure skating, specifically the performances of Evan Lysacek of Team USA and Yevgeny Plushenko of Russia. My congratulations go out to Evan for his first Olympic gold medal and my professional concern goes out to NBC for allowing a typo to occur in so important an article.
Much had been made about of Plushenko’s transition scores, the mark given for the steps connecting the elements, as well as his other component scores — think the old artistic marks.
Had much been made “about Plushenko’s transition scores” or “of Plushenko’s transition scores”? You’ve got to choose one or the other…unless of course you don’t want to have a perfect sentence. Your choice.
