What happened to professional journalists? In the olden days, journalists were taught how to speak with proper grammar and use proper English. It seems those days are long gone. It's one thing for advertising to mangle the language but a completely different matter when one is getting paid (especially those that get paid LARGE sums) to communicate.
Just a few of fairly recent 'flubs':
CNN 1/3/09 10:22AM "both sides they are"
NBC 1/14/09 6:34 "a big hunk of cold air has broken off"
NBC 1/14/09 6:36 "on the day"
ABC 1/16/09 6:30 [People are arriving] "for the inaugrual."
The advertising world long ago abandoned the proper use of nouns and adjectives. For example, take any hand soap "with antibacterial"... antibacterial what they don't say.
