Spot the deliberate mistake


Let this headline, from this week's Jewish Tribune, be a warning to all copy-editors out there.

It should have read "Minister welcomes Anti-Semitism report", of course.

It's only topped by the student magazine I used to edit in Canada, Dateline:Middle East, which in 1991, around the time of the Madrid peace conference - and before I was on board - published a huge headline: "Peace breaks out in the Middle".

"East" had dropped off.
