I commented in the open thread about mistakes and shoddy editing. Here’s one.
Was this responsible for another piece of carelessness that shows how one thing can lead to an other?
It appeared in an anti-Israel editorial in the Observer the next day.
Of course the two incidents were separate, but one was in the West Bank, the other in the Gaza strip, and a comma is different from a forward slash. But if I’m right, it suggests that carelessness, combined with agenda-driven churnalism is alive and well, and that some of us don’t bother to read beyond a headline.
