I'm back!!!

Proofreading does not seem to be in the job description of reporters in the Southeastern area of North Carolina. The reporters have to work fast (in an attempt to be first to publish a story) and mistakes are made, which is understandable. What I can't understand, however, is that even after bringing the "typo" to their attention (via emails and postings), the reporters, news directors, etc would rather argue, with you, than simply correcting the mistake (once, I had a news director tell me, "you could tell what the reporter was trying to say"). I would think a reporter would have more pride in their, published, work product which will always be "searchable" by, future, potential, employers.
