AP, what's the record for most mistakes in a cutline?

Discussion in 'Journalism topics only' started by friend of a friend, May 1, 2007.

  1. Check out this AP gem from the Sens-Devils game last night.

    Ottawa Senators' Danny Heatly is rammed into New Devils Jersy goaltender Martin Brodeur's net by Devils defenseman Colin White as Senators' Daniel Alfredsson, left, looks on during the first period of Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinals hockey game, Monday, April 30, 2007, in Ottawa.

    They forgot "Alfredsson, of Sweden."

    Does anybody, anywhere, use those fucking foreign nation identification tags in hockey cutlines? Get fucking rid of them. Just more shit to get wrong.

    I was going to say, I consider it an error on their part any time they tack the nationality onto a photo subject. Because they have erred in thinking that anyone gives a crap.
  4. Agreed on the nationality. I take it out every friggin time.

    I think someone here mentioned that they do that for European clients who search by nation for photos. Still a pain, but I think that's the reasoning.

    Then I want, "Joe Dokes, of the United States," and "Doug McKenzie, of Canada," on every name, too.

    You actually do get those on photos shot outside of North America.
