The Daily Telegraph gets it wrong

In its obituary for Jennifer Moss, who played Lucille Hewitt in Coronation Street, The Daily Telegraph repeatedly refers to ‘Grampian Television’ instead of Granada.

Granada Television not Grampian

What a mistake to make about one of the most famous television programmes of all time from probably the most famous ITV company. Doesn’t the Telegraph have sub-editors?

How can you trust a publication that is wrong about something as basic as this and doesn’t notice?

It alarms me just how often I see factual errors like this on subjects I know something about. I’ve spotted a few in The Independent newspaper over recent months. And the obvious question is, how many mistakes are there in articles about subjects I know nothing about?
