MRC Isn't A Copy-Editing Watchdog
Topic: Media Research Center

The Media Research Center loves to bill itself as "America's Media Watchdog." (If you define Fox News and conservative blogs as a media outlet that don't need watchdogging, then sure.)

The MRC does not bill itself as "America's Copy-Editing Watchdog." And for good reason. Spot the error in the wallpaper image on the MRC's Twitter page:

That's right -- "Media" is misspelled in the white box on the left.

It seems that the MRC is so enraptured by its self-propaganda that little things like checking to see if "America's Media Watchdog" is spelled correctly just go right past them.

But then, when you consider that the MRC's mission really isn't watchdogging but serving as an outlet for right-wing propaganda -- added to the fact that there are precious few MRC employees with actual journalism experience -- it's no wonder that something as essential as spell-checking is not a priority. Even in prominently placed copy, like Twitter wallpaper.
