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

@nytopinion @GregBensinger "two-years" shouldn't be hyphenated in "two-years in the making," @GregBensinger. https://t.co/KXTWtMvzf0

@nytopinion @jadler1969 This is misquoted:  replace the left single quotation mark with a pair of quotation marks, strike the right single quotation mark. https://t.co/sQMJmaKa3o

What kind of defective word-processing software even allows you to do this? https://t.co/PL3NcOkfNi

@nytopinion "whomever" is a grammatical error for whoever by the editorial board in "an investigation into whomever may have leaked the information."  @GregBensinger @MaraGay @BCAppelbaum @mcottle @jessewegman @katiekings @BrentNYT @JInterlandi @lauren_kelley https://t.co/AVk9ESjJgQ

Some factual errors I've flagged that I forgot about:

The time Peter Baker said a Senator was impeached in 1787, before the Senate existed.

The time Jonah Bromwich said a state legislative candidate was running for Congress in Texas's nonexistent 57th district. https://t.co/JHzm5SBva9

@nytimes Phenomenal typo:  county for country in "Those advocates have pressed the administration to tighten the program that issues student visas and work permits, claiming it provides an avenue for immigrants to stay in the county after graduation and compete for American jobs." https://t.co/pQ2bMQCyfV

@EricaLG @nytimes @peterbakernyt Took you until the last paragraph, but you made your typo quota:  single quotes within double quotes, not double quotes within double quotes. https://t.co/pxfZMzZ9RA

Quoted @NYTNational

"The surge is here," said an emergency physician in Houston. Deaths are fewer, but Texas's spike in coronavirus cases is like New York "all over again" as doctors fall ill and supplies dwindle. Now, the state is adapting hard lessons to new challenges. https://t.co/24suS9QKOg

One day, in fact, their reporter showed up unannounced at her house to beg her to write her book with him, then staked her out banging on her front and back doors for several hours while texting her to say he was "worried" because she wouldn't answer. https://t.co/6EAA7nVOIC

It's weird to see the Times piling on the Mary Trump story without mentioning the part about how their reporter unethically tried to ghostwrite her book while using her as an anonymous source, then stalked her to the point she almost called the police. https://t.co/HooOVZGKXM https://t.co/VbUf0r3DWE

@nytimes "a half a million" is a grammatical error for "a half million" or "half a million" in "a pandemic that has infected more than 11.6 million people, killed more than a half a million and upended life around the world."  @katierogers @apoorva_nyc https://t.co/mT5HLxhpHz

The advice Tom gives Biden above is perhaps the sole way Biden could lose himself the election.
