    Hey! Looking for a little bit of help on an assignment I'm doing for school. Trying to find poorly written articles (preferably about American or Canadian politics) that were published. Any links here would be fantastic, thanks!

    What do you mean? Anything specific?

    In retrospect, probably should have specified haha. Poor grammar, failing to deliver what is promised in the headline, long or unnecessary sentences, rambling or going off topic, etc. It's a pretty wide net we're casting, but flaws in the design of the article itself is what my teacher is going after.

    After finding an article, I basically need to edit it.

    woof. i need to learn to save stuff and not remove them from now on. i think @Spencer Control @Wharf Rat @Dominick are well read and i know i've laughed at stuff before so..

    Would this count? Not just cause I think it's ridiculous, but...it is kinda all over the place and inconsistent lol

    Thanks! Yeah, that is definitely in the vein of what I'm looking for. Lacks any kind of focus.

    my local news station is notorious for terribly written articles for the web. You can usually find incorrect spelling, bad grammar, or even getting the name of towns/cities messed up. I don't know of a recent one off hand but if you have time comb through some stories. If you're looking for political stories, here's the link: WTNH Connecticut News | Connecticut and National Politics

    I know a little something you won't ever know Prestigious

    Which is weird because imo CT local news is usually pretty good reporting. At least compared to what I see in Boston nowadays
