WXYZ's web content people don't do good work

Post by 696lover » Tue Jun 23, 2020 2:07 pm

Got busy this morning until a few minutes ago and missed the news. Popped onto the 7 website to see if anything big happened.

A number of the stories have serious problems. Missing words, improper tenses, awkward phrasing. And it is just the ones written by the web content people, the pieces by the on air reporters are good.

Did they farm it out to Indy or to the interns?

That's what happens when grammar isn't taught in schools and these dumb Gen Z kids are more concerned with clicks and being influencers than writing and journalism.
