Typos of the New York Times

I am an appellate lawyer and persnickety dude. As a hobby, I correct typos in the Times, which no longer employs copy editors and consequently has tons of typos

Fun Fact

Twitter is now worth more than $11 billion.

@nytimes Delete:  you, like your reporter @S_Evangelina, made the error of putting the question mark inside the quotation marks, which is incorrect because "America's Next Top Model" was not called "America's Next Top Model?" https://t.co/JCdMzS12ZN

@nytimes You're missing a comma after "love" in "a drama series created by Sam Levinson about high-school students who navigate love sex, drugs and identity conundrums."  @smbahr14 https://t.co/UkCt0AZDqq

@nytimes This is a comma splice.  You need a semicolon or period before "thus."  @FrancesRobles https://t.co/cJivV5x3t5

“I pop 20 of them and just feel OK," Martha Stewart said, “but some of my friends do two and feel high.” America’s foremost domestic goddess has a new line of CBD gummies. https://t.co/zOVp97TbT9

Note that one of the four pairs of quotation marks here is straight, while the other three are curly. https://t.co/PrcPr421JB

@nytimes "is" is a grammatical error in this sentence:

Today, those microscopic strands are being repurposed as biodegradable textiles like the Dutch designer Aniela Hoitink’s 3-D-molded MycoTEX . . . and Reishi, developed by . . . MycoWorks and is as buttery as leather.

Wildfires in west put young lungs at risk. How fires pose peril for children's airwaves https://t.co/LXwfdW0cF0

*airways. "airwaves" are radio frequencies used for radio and antenna TV broadcasting. Children don't have them. You Times social media people should really all quit and get a job tweeting animal videos or sub-literate gibberish about Kendall Jenner's latest eye liner. https://t.co/2VOyATgmuc

@nytimes This single quotation mark in your transcript of Kimmel's monologue is a typo (unless you want to add one before "why" in that sentence).  Zoom should be capitalized in "zoom school"; it's the name of a company/program.  @SopanDeb https://t.co/bG4Jn3km54

It's been a bad year for lungs. Wildfires in the Pacific Northwest now threaten the airwaves of young people, as Covid-19 poses a particular threat to the lungs of the elderly and infirm.  https://t.co/ZOA8xW7Ja2

@benyt This is ungrammatical for lack of "a" before "2019 interview":

“After a while it was like, Jesus Christ,” the host, Joe Rogan, recalled in 2019 interview. https://t.co/raq9Yl3IgI

@benyt This is a creative typo:  an asterisk where you meant to type a pair of quotation marks. https://t.co/Vj9qTxFn08

@nytpolitics Why have you still not corrected "Justice Warren E. Burger"?  This is like calling Mark Zuckerberg "Executive Officer of Facebook."  (Burger was a Chief Justice.)  @anniekarni https://t.co/cnS4Dr3ZGr

@nytimes Delete: you misquoted Justice Breyer in your picture card. He said she was "a rock of righteousness," not, nonsensically, "a rock righteousness." https://t.co/IJcVMVYWGi

Surely the Times social media team has seen this correction by now, so they must have decided they would rather leave a tweet with a lot of engagement up than correct a gibberish misquote of a Supreme Court Justice. https://t.co/N0lCzfRxcX

@DouthatNYT @nytopinion You misspelled Ginsburg as "Ginsberg," Douthat.  Congratulations on contributing the 12th such misspelling to the Times in the last 48 hours. https://t.co/3VSaw2dAQd

@cflav @nytimes This verb-noun-agreement error is still here (because nouns in "combined with" clauses don't count towards verb-noun-agreement, "mean" should be "means"). https://t.co/4X1ADvKxcX
