Washington Post can’t afford editors!

Recently, I read a heart wrenching story on Washington Post about a parent’s dire situation in Gaza strip with his American born kids. The kids passports are expiring or expired, hence they can’t travel out of the area and can’t get help from American consulate. The heart wrenching part of the story is the horrible grammatical errors and not so great journalism that made it to the pages of Washington Post online.

I have been told that the errors were probably fixed on the print edition, which is when I realized that there are still print edition newspapers out there in 21st century!!!!!

Here is the link to the article and a few of the horrid errors.

“However, the blockade has been widely criticize. ”

“Gazans with European passports seem to bee better off. ”

Did Washington Post outsource editing to India and somebody forgot to tell me?
