L.A. Times Inserts Grammatical Errors Into Palin Quote

This pretty much confirms your worst suspicions about the MSM.

Have any doubt that Palin's interviews were edited to make her appear less informed and more incoherent? Look no further than the L.A. Times knowing re-writing Palin quotes--though the actual transcripts are available--to try and make her look stupid, and easily dismissed.

Imagine what they're doing when alternative transcripts aren't available for the general public to fact-check their "rigorous" reporting.

Of course, I'm sure the Katie Couric and Charles Gibson interviews weren't edited or skewed in any way to make Palin look bad. Not at all.

Not that I think the LA Times is actually above editing quotes... However, your source links to the Website. There is no editing at all on the LA Times Website. All material is virtually first draft. It may (or may not) be substituted later on for an edited version if the article makes print. But, really, maybe not. The nexus between printed copy and Web copy simply has not been achieved. There is no easy interface for editing online, no system for passing an edited article from editor to editor as happens in an actual newspaper. To me these mistakes seem like fast typing or a first draft transcription hurridly posted online.

Well, you would know, having actually been a journalist. But it seems to me there's a lot of this stuff regarding Palin, which fits the template of her being a moron.

Oh yeah. The LA Times and its 'staff' are completely capable of misquoting conservatives. Just that I don't think so in this case.
