WTF journalism?

This is not a recurring segment that pounces on minor mistakes or from minor players.  This is about when paid journalists as news outlets reveal how either stupid or lazy -- or both -- that they are and still manage to bank a check.


Take Armando Tinoco who is not a journalist for DEADLINE, he's also an editor.  That makes his error this weekend even more boneheaded and when you grasp that all he's doing is rewriting a NEW YORK POST Page Six item, you really get what an idiot he is to type:

However, [Meghan] McCain said she does maintain relationships with former View co-hosts like Jenny McCarthy and Rosy O’Donnell, who will be a guest on her podcast soon. McCain also said she has Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s phone number on her phone.

Rosy O'Donnell?  Rosy?

Is there any Rosie who spells is "Rosy"?  Rosie O'Donnell doesn't spell it that way.

What kind of an idiot with the title "editor" doesn't know how to spell Rosie or, for that matter, no how to look it up?

And if you're wondering, Page Six got the spelling right:

“I actually have some interesting relationships with co-hosts that were on the show that weren’t on my seasons — I guess I can break this here — like, Rosie O’Donnell is coming on my podcast soon. So, I mean, please don’t cancel now that I’ve announced it,” she jokes. 


Armando's been a paid journalist since 2011, Rosie O'Donnell's been famous since the 90s.  WTF?  Here's a list from PLAYBACK FM of famous people named Rosie and they note that Rosie O'Donnell is the most famous of all the Rosies.
