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