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.

I didn't think anything of it, figuring it would be fixed shortly — and certainly before it got into print hours later. Guess not.
