That’s Quite a Cough
You have to wonder what kind of checking and oversight they do on spelling when creating these banners:
Now, that’s a natural misspelling, very understandable: the spell checker would not catch that “whopping” was a misspelling of “whooping.” If these are random, then they are at least explicable if not acceptable at that level.
Fox News, on the other hand, seems to intentionally make errors. The easiest place to see this is where they paint disgraced Republicans as Democrats, usually with a “D” before their name:
If this happened just once, even twice fully at random, then maybe… but it has happened several times under specific conditions. That’s not an error, that’s a pattern.
True, Fox sometimes makes actual errors out of sheer stupidity, as they did with the graphic of Japan showing a nuclear reactor in Tokyo named “Shibuyaeggman.” This does not, however, mean that all errors are due to ineptitude; quite few are demonstrably intended.
A real tell was with this screen:
No way that was a typo. That graphic could not have been made in “error.” It was clearly intentional, intended as a swipe at Romney.
In essence, Fox intentionally makes “mistakes” to even further slant the “news” they present.
