Shocker: LAT Deliberately Edits Errors Into Palin Quote to Make Her Look Stupid

But she didn't say them.

She didn't say "confliction stories," as the LATimes claimed. She said "conflicting stories." And they made other changes like this.

Most newspapers will clean up a politician's minor grammatical errors if only for ease of readability -- ever try to follow an exact uh-by-stutter transcription of speech?

Today the LAT begins a new tradition -- deliberately inserting grammatical errors and wrong words to give the "flavor" of someone's presumed stupidity. Even if that person wasn't obliging enough to provide that flavor herself.

Or Are They Just That Stupid? I admit, the theory does have merit.
