subbing errors usually happen when there are too few people and/or too much pressure
i am currently on an editorial team of two.
but that...fecking hell.
Here, we write a story, it gets read by our news editor, it then gets sent to the subs who put it on the page and check it for errors, a print out comes back to the desk to be proofed by a different reporter, then it goes back with any amendments to the subs to be submitted. Mistakes still slip through, but nothing like that.
The best near miss we ever had was a page about a school trip to Auschwitz. At the last minute, the reporter proofing the page realised the adverts were for ovens and we managed to change it. But we could have had a real viral hit on our hands.
Christ. My sympathies.

Or just wondering why there appears to be a cock hanging out his trousers?
And trying to establish if it's actually a cock.
Just open that one and you'll see what it is.
that an old man had his cock out in a paper, I reailsed the truth.
Some kind of quilting. Unless he has a very, very, albeit impressive, white pecker growing in completely the wrong place.
that just said LEGAL TEAM PLS CHECK at the end of a sentence.
The Guardian has a covenant that says they're NOT ALLOWED to correct mistakes? Have they made every single sub redundant?
Yeah sorry, it was a weak joke based on their reputation for typographic errors. Don't worry, I'm getting my coat...
where the two deadly enemies are briefly united to fight a common cause.
but I don't think they do it on purpose.
I've been shamed for my bad jokes. No need to go out the other side. :(
who got given a belly scratch and a spoon of peanut butter at the end.
One of the places I used to work published an educational book called 'Travel and Tourism in Acton'. Luckily, it had nothing to do with me.
