When major news sites frequently misspell words and regularly misuse punctuation, I worry about the future of literacy. Are these companies too cheap to use proofreaders anymore, or have they simply stopped caring? This is a worrisome problem that grows with each passing day. The dumbing down of society is occurring at an alarming rate. It’s one thing to misspell or misuse punctuation on FB during casual conversation. It’s quite another to make egregious errors on major news sites.
