Fox News spelled the word "education" incorrectly

That's right! Last night on Countdown With Keith Olbermann, he showed a screen capture from Fox News in which the headline included the previously unknown word "EDUCTAION" Keith went on to say it's either an unfortunate type-o, or Fox News is promoting the "Educat Ion" system.

I didn't see that episode, but it sounds just like Fox News. I just started watching Countdown a few months ago, and it is already my favorite show.

I never miss Countdown. Keith's getting to be really popular, today he was on Martha Stewart, a week or so ago he was on The View and remember how he covered when McCain ditched Letterman for Katie? Annie

I remember that show! Sorry I missed this discussion when you first posted it. We've got to get some more recruits to this interest group! Annie

Keith rocks, and yeah, I hope the extra popularity doesn't change anything about his show. He loves to make light of himself as soon as he'll make light of the next person in the news. Did you see when, about a month or so ago, he and Joel McHale had a "reference war" between their shows? Heh.

Well, it might be the result of being forced to quote Bush's statements for 8 years. Arguably, U.S. president George W. Bush was by far one of the biggest assassins of the English Grammar. Many other people do make spelling mistakes, but hey, for most of us English is not our native language.

Allow me to smile in a very subtle way. Milady, how come most Americans Hate George W. Bush and he was ruling the country for long 8 years? Probably is a last minute reversal of the public perception, nowadays when the economic depression seems to hang like a millstone around average American's necks. From this side of the world, the things are frightening, as a weak America will mean the return to the more unstable, multi-polar system of power.

You may not understand...the first time he was "elected", he had less than half of the popular vote. The Supreme Court made the ruling over whether he got in. The second time, who knows. The thing is, both times he "won" the presidency, it was fishy. The thing is, MOST Americans *DO NOT LIKE* nor do they agree with Bush. This is why we are so grateful for Obama. :)

Do you ever watch CNN? Holy crap, I wouldn't be surprised if they spell their own name wrong!

Who do you mean? Their own name, that is?

CNN. But my point was that all of the news channels have typos and misspellings. If you watch the ticker at the bottom, they are the worst!

True, they tend to.
