Is USA Today’s Kathy Kiely Obsessed, or Is It Just a Glitch?

Filed under: MSM Biz/Other Bias,Taxes & Government — Tom @ 12:21 pm

From her USA Today’s piece on the Alito confirmation, check out this gibberish (3rd paragraph as it appeared at 12:15 PM; obviously it could be corrected at any moment or taken down, NOTE-USAT updated and fixed — see UPDATE below):

Alito, 55., who has compiled a mostly conservative record during 15 years on the bench, becomes the 110th. justice to serve on the high court. He succeeds retiring Justice Sandra Day O’Connor,who has provided a deciding vote in favor of maintaining a woman’s right to end her pregnancy and other controversies women’s right to terminate their pregnancies, among other controversial matters.

So is Ms. Kiely obsessed, or is it just a glitch? Given that abortion is the first legal issue mentioned in her report, my money is on “obsessed.”

UPDATE: USAT did a 1:54 PM update (same link) and corrected the paragraph, now the fourth, which now reads as follows:

Alito, 55, who has compiled a mostly conservative record during 15 years on the bench, becomes the 110th justice to serve on the high court. He succeeds retiring Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, who has provided a deciding vote in favor of maintaining a woman’s right to end her pregnancy, among other controversial matters.
