His writing career should be in Jeopardy!

The writer of this article - "Mayor Rob Ford’s crack scandal featured on Jeopardy" (where's the ! at the end of Jeopardy!?) on Yahoo! Canada News on January 24, 2014 - didn't do his homework to find out the true value of the clue. I don't know the true value either, but I know it wasn't $80 because the minimum value for the first round is $200 and the minimum value for the second round is $400. Then,

the article also included this tweet from a Toronto City Councillor. $500? Also wrong. In the first round the clues in each category are worth $200, $400, $600, $800, and $1,000. In the second round the clues are worth $400, $800, $1,200, $1,600, and $2,000. And what's up with the apostrophe between Toronto and the question mark? In related news,

the final sentence of a different article about Rob Ford - "Toronto Mayor Rob Ford arrives in Vancouver" on CBC News online on January 31, 2014 - contains a misspelling of what should be continued. Click an image to enlarge it.
