Dreaded Purple Master (2/14, 9:06 AM) catches Yahoo News in an embarrassing grammatical error in the very first sentence of a story:
White House reporters pour over military records of President Bush that were released late evening Friday, Feb. 13, 2004.
Perhaps the problem is not so much pure ignorance as a mixture of ignorance and malice. After all, the grammar is correct if we supply a direct object for "pour". Whether the missing word would be "slime", "bile", "venom", or something to do with the contents of chamber pots cannot be determined, but it would certainly be something nasty.Posted by Dr. Weevil at February 15, 2004 07:57 AM
