Being Picky Again

Is it really being picky to expect more from your local news station? Don’t they employ editors and proofreaders?


Bullets ring through the home of New Bern man while he was sitting on his porch.

It happened Friday Night at 523 Miller street.

Tyjuan Starks tells police he was sitting on his porch when a male drove buy and opened fire.

The only description is that the shooter was wearing a hooded sweatshirt.

Starks was taken to PCMH.

If you have any information about the shooting your asked to call New Bern Police.


  1. I don't think so. On my last book, Six Hours Past Thursday, I fired 2 editors and ended up editing it myself.

  2. Jack~~I guess the saying fits that if you want it done right, you gotta do it yourself, huh?

    I know my spelling and grammar aren't perfect but neither do I work for a media outlet either.

  3. Oh nasty. So many errors in so few lines!! It's scary how people don't seem to really care anymore about what they produce, even if it's just those few lines for a news blurb!

  4. Lynne~~I agree. I seem to be catching mistakes like these more and more.


I love comments. Leave me one. Now.
