All they need to do is to turn their spool chucker on.
It's dead easy now, not like the days when printing was done by people assembling all the text using individual cast lead letters.

So what's the BBC's excuse then?

Their news app is littered with howlers every day, and no, I'm not exagerating!

I'm of the opinion that he BBC let the teaboy loose on the system at times.

Best ever for me was the Guardian's front page headline on the day after Ronald Reagan's election in 1984, when he took 49 states to Mondale's single one. This was the main headline, 48 point or larger.

"REAGAN WINS IN LANDSIDE".

I remember cracking up reading that on the platform at Finchley Road heading to work. No wonder the nickname "Grauniad' is accurate, and long-lived.
