i newspaper, September 24, 2018

Do read these pious words from the editor of the i newspaper, a person named Oliver Duff. If he has read this, in the same day’s paper:

he should be ashamed. It is not the first time I have seen this error but I still find it hard to believe that someone who calls him or herself a journalist, and presumably accepts payment, can be so pig-ignorant. This includes Mr Duff and/or his deputy, and his writer and his specialist desk editors, whatever they do, his sub-editors and his revise sub.  The word for tightly stretched is ‘taut’. ‘Taught’ is the past tense of ‘teach’.
