You Might Want to Check That

I’m hardly the first, second, or thrid person to see this, but I couldn’t pass up posting it myself. It seems that the Americal Family Association’s OneNewsNow website will run a find-and-replace on words in news articles without looking into the context of the article. You can imagine, then, what happens when Tyson Gay appeared in an AP story about the Olympic Trials. The article has since been corrected.

Find-and-replace is not your friend
