    Um.. you may want to check your editing a bit better on the 2nd headline. “Nearly missing baby” implies that the baby was hit. Based on the article, I’m pretty sure you meant “narrowly missing baby”. Better editing -> better credibility.

    Weak complaint.

  • mikesonn

    34 acres of car parking? War on cars? I think not.

    I care about Streetsblog, and I want it to be credible. Yes, it’s nitpicky, but having a high standard of publication is what gives news sources that credibility.

  • SFPD were camped out at Octavia and Grove again. The war on cyclists continues.

  • Thanks for the lesson, J.

  • Fixed, thanks.

  • mikesonn

    I understand your grammatical reasoning, but calling “credibility” into question based on that is a bit much.

    @mikesonn:disqus Editorial mistakes distract readers from the content of articles – my initial confusion and this discussion being two excellent examples. Of course one mistake doesn’t really damage credibility, but it is by catching errors quickly and correcting them that you prevent one mistake from leading to more mistakes.
    Perhaps there is a better forum for this type of feedback, and I’ve tried to remove my comment via Disqus (doesn’t seem possible), now that the correction has been made.

  • mikesonn

    Fair enough. I see your point. I, too, have seen errors. I usually just email Aaron abialick@streetsblog.org and he quickly fixes it.

    Here’s something to chew on while 4/K is shut down blocking 280.
