Spellcheck fail at the Herald

It was a relatively simple task for someone at the Herald: Pick up a story about Dr. Mehmet Oz that ran last week in the  Philadelphia Inquirer, slap it on the front page of Tropical Life, and move on to the next task.

No muss, no fuss. How easy is that?

Not so easy, it turns out.

Here's how the story looked on the website of the Inquirer.

And here's how it looked on the front page of Tuesday's Tropical life.

Somehow, someone at the Herald managed to misspell the word "wizardry"...even after the copy editors at the Inquirer had done all the spellchecking.

OK, so people make mistakes.

But surely someone at the paper took a minute to make sure the error wasn't repeated in the online version of the story.

Guess again, Pedro.
