WSJ So Eager To Condemn Obama It Forgets How To Spell (Again)

The Wall Street Journal, first published in 1889, was once the quintessential objective read for the nation's business. When Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. bought the daily newspaper—which still claims the highest U.S. daily circulation at 2.1 million—adding to an empire that includes Fox News Channel and the New York Post, it devolved into a transparent rabidly conservative rag that sinks its journalistic teeth into the Obama administration at every opportunity.

Unfortunately, WSJ's credibility is not only debunked by its acidic political bent, but like so many pubs, it has sacrificed veteran journalists for its bottom line—thus, a regimen of typos, incorrect tenses and just plain poor writing.

Today's example is particularly comical, in view of the fact that the opinion piece tears into Obama, and yet can't seem to proffer proper English. "Americans remains..." I believe that says it all, eh?
