Typo o' the day

lat-front-42110.jpgIf you're the Los Angeles Times and you want to go top of page one with a story attacking the credibility of the mayor, you probably shouldn't misspell credibility in the headline deck. The funny thing is, I got an email before 7:30 last night (from someone in the mayor's office, as it happens) pointing out that credibility was misspelled in the deck on the web story. I didn't think anything of it, figuring it would be fixed shortly — and certainly before it got into print hours later. Guess not.
