Journo Hate Mail: Reader irate over spelling and punctuation errors 

Of course he makes a whopper of an error in his letter. But who’s judging? 

To Whom It May Concern,

I just changed my home page from The Daily Caller to National Review.  I  have always found Tucker Carlson to be  very compelling and stimulating. But, I can’t believe that he would condone the lack of proof reading being carried out at your web site. Spelling and punctuation errors are rampant in your articles.  But, the straw that has broken the camel’s back for me is one of your sport [sic] writers. That you allow Hookstead , repeatedly,  to use this forum for his personal vendetta against a football coach is juvenile. I have no allegiance nor problem with Bielema and could not care less how his team fares, but think it is very childish to indulge in ad hominum [sic] attacks using such a public forum.
