24 hours Vancouverrors - July 2012

This post is a collection of the errors I detected in the 24 hours Vancouver newspaper and on the 24 hours Vancouver website during July 2012. Starting things off, on July 6 (in "Katy Perry: Part of Me") captures should have been capture. Then,

also on July 6, due should have been do (in "'Caps moving on up"). Then,

on July 7 (in "Are we being dumb with smartphones" online), Blackberry should be BlackBerry. Respect the camel case. Then,

later in the same article, it's still incorrectly capitalized, and now it's also incorrectly pluralized. It should be BlackBerrys. Then,

on July 16 the headline (of "17 injured by lightning at Ontario Ribfest") has the correct spelling of lightning. But in the article, both attempts at lightning are seen as lighting. Also, the final paragraph has a space inserted in what should be they, which is amusingly obvious when listening to the audio of it. Finally,
on July 27 there was a sneak peak occurrence (in "Perry sets sights on comeback"). I'm still waiting for sneek peek. I don't understand why sneak peak has quotation marks around it. Thanks for reading. Click an image to enlarge it.
