For a little humorous break from the world of hard news, we have the embarrassing story of the Valley News that serves Vermont and New Hampshire misspelling its own name on the front page of the July 21 issue.
The big oopsie was followed on July 22 with an egg-on-the-face, editor's note apologizing to the readers for this ridiculous mistake.
Editor's Note - Readers may have noticed that the Valley News misspelled its own name on yesterday's front page. Given that we routinely call on other institutions to hold them accountable for their mistakes, let us say for the record: We sure feel silly.
Gosh darn it but don't they look silly? Still, it's great that they took the gaffe in good humor. After all, with a mistake that absurd, what else could you do?

Funny, but we all make mistakes.
Now back to TreeRepublic...
Looks ok to me
The real kicker of the story was that it wasn’t caught until 3 days later when Hester Thompson was cleaning out her budgie’s cage. /sarc
Could been worse as in Newz.
They just had lots of News - the plural of News is Newss.
Well, that’s what happens when you outsource your reporting and printing to a non-Engrish speaking country.
Above comment of mine was for you, too.
The Manchester Guardian (now just The Guardian) was notorious for typos, especially back in the days of hot type.
Supposedly they once spelled their own name on the masthead "GRAUNIAD" but it may have just been "GAURDIAN".
I wont mention a tragic error in the headline.
I also put a damn ‘ in its in my own headline when I shouldn’t have!! Even I misspelled something, dangit!
Typso ping - it seems to be srpeading.
