Wednesday, November 22, 2006 - poor writing/editing

As most of you know, I prefer to get my news from the printed version, rather than online.

This morning I decided to scan a few articles on One article, "Turkey's top competition: Chiefs," was poorly written and/or edited.

Punctuation errors: "Kansas City Chiefs' 7 p.m. game..." - what's up with the apostrophe?

Poor writing: "While one local station in Denver and Kansas City will be allowed to simulcast, the Wichita area is like the rest of the nation in needing the NFL Network to see the game. Unlike in many parts of the country, it is available here through Cox cable."

This is just one example. The entire article could be written in a more clear and concise manner?

By the way, does AP style apply to online news?
