How not to publish a newspaper, part 12 (website edition)
I was excited to see this headline because I thought this story was going to be about illegal dumpsters, as we still have an ongoing situation here in Maspeth that you may have heard about. But I read the entire story and never found the word "dumpster" repeated in the text. That's because it's not about illegal dumpsters, it's about illegal dumpers (and those you can't "put a lid on"). We can't blame lack of spell check on this one. Perhaps lack of a brain was the cause. And we know it wasn't the reporter who messed this one up.
