Grammar nazi ang peg: SC spox cites Inquirer print error
The printing error on page one of the Philippine Daily Inquirer’s Wednesday edition (January 18,2017) did not escape the watchful eyes of Supreme Court spokesman Theodore Te.
Atty. Te, who regularly monitors newspapers checking on court stories as part of his job, posted on his personal Facebook account a photo grab of the Inquirer edition’s “guide questions” that had the three first words jumbled up.
The printed questions read: Who many times did gunmen fire at this Pasig drug suspect? How are extrajudicial killings doing to today’s kids? What will perform the ‘winning’ impersonation?
“Something off here. (Proper order should be “How”, “What”, then “Who”),” the SC official said in his post at 8 a.m.
Te made a reference to the Inquirer statement about the error in the comments section of his post that had 5 shares and over 100 reactions.
In the said statement, the Inquirer apologized to its readers for the misprinting it attributed to last-minute changes and vowed to strive to make sure it won’t happen again.
