He Owns You
Take a look at this real newspaper front page from Friday:
You have to look carefully to notice the just-above-the-fold headline on the right:
Buffet media buys paper the headline reports.
It's not like they don't know the name of their new owner, billionaire investor Warren Buffett (with two t's) — after all, they got it right in the subhead.
So I guess what they're really saying is, "Dear Boss: we need a bigger personnel budget so we can hire back one or two of the copy editors we laid off."
The News & Record is the same newspaper which used a gigantic front-page photo to embarrass a local school district for its own gigantic typo back in 2010.
Editors, edit thyself!
