“Italian death call for alledged Nazis”…

…is the headline of this story on the SMH web-site; yet another example of the web-pages not being proof-read before being published.

News-corp papers are worse at this than Fairfax, but Fairfax isn’t that great. I’m just amazed that “alledged” hasn’t been corrected.

On a similar note, The Australian used “nulear” in its lead story before christmas in a piece on the possibility of Australia using nuclear power. Incredible! Don’t these mistakes stick out to people working in the media?

Update: the misspelling’s been fixed.
