cnn misspells Stephanie Cutter's name on Crossfire promo

Stephanie "Cupper"? Oops.

Maybe CNN should have misspelled S.E. Cupp's name as S.E. "Cutt" just to compensate.

Come on, CNN, if you're going to push a new show, at least proofread your copy. We all make mistakes, sure, but promoting a new series means putting your best foot forward, not putting it in your mouth.

At least they got it right a couple of weeks ago, here. Ironically, a year ago, CNN caught the Romney campaign making a spelling error and wrote it up: Romney iPhone app misspells 'America' to Web's delight.

And of course, there was this memorable Jon Huntsman Moment: Huntsman Campaign Begins with Misspelling His Own Name.

Okay, fun time over. No I couldn't resist, yes I'm mentally twelve years old (so are CNN's editors, apparently). Now back to more important stories.

    Tea-baggers are known for misspelling anything and everything.

    CNN is about as irrelevant as Fox.

    What's funny about that is that it was reported that there were some very bad vibes associated with Ms Cutter getting the gig. She's apparently not as she appears from her emails.

    I'd vote that this is just CNN's usual level of incompetence, though. As long as they still have Wolf Blitzer competence won't matter at CNN.

    The media & most big businesses in general seem now to pay more attention to their staffs physical appearance, social & financial pedigree & purchased credentials rather than hiring truly smart, knowledgeable & capable people that are actually good at their jobs. Just because people are good looking, are connected & could pay to obtain an expensive degree doesn't mean they are worth a shit.

    That was photoshopped, not real.

    My favorite Romney moment was him behind his grandkids when each held a letter. They spelled RMONEY.

    Incompetence is the over riding characteristic of the MSM for the past 30 years.
