We are sure that other formidable news sites put up headlines that from time to time don’t meet AP standards and have a typo or grammatical error in them. And as soon as we come across them, we’ll collect them and post them on here as well. But when you’re CNN, one of the big boys, you just wouldn’t expect as many as we see. They themselves say they think they are among the world leaders.
From their “about” tab:
“CNN.com is among the world’s leaders in online news and information delivery. Staffed 24 hours, seven days a week by a dedicated staff in CNN’s world headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, and in bureaus worldwide, CNN.com relies heavily on CNN’s global team of almost 4,000 news professionals. CNN.com features the latest multimedia technologies, from live video streaming to audio packages to searchable archives of news features and background information. The site is updated continuously throughout the day.”
These are actual headlines that got through some of their almost 4,000 news professionals and were posted on their main page. We copied and pasted them exactly as they appeared.
