Is It Just Me?

In advertising, news headlines, there seem to be a lot of misspellings.

The three major television networks are guilty.  Edwin Newman, former NBC anchor, must be rolling in his grave.

If CBS, were still referred to as the “Tiffany Network,” I’m sure, “Tiffany” would be spelled, with one “f”–or possibly, one “f” and two “n’s.”

Methinks, something is out of kilter, in this age of digitization.

Is it auto-correct?  I’ve had my share of run-ins with auto-correct.  The latest, was wanting to say “Model A Ford”–auto-correct insisted on adding a “Ford Mustang,” suffix.

I still have a few brain cells left.  Why would I ever say “Model A Ford Mustang?”

More likely it’s because of capitulation to text-speak, or IM shorthand.

Whatever the cause, it sometimes makes me a bit crazy.
