A problem with using syndicated news...

...is quality control.

Spotted this on the front page of the Mail.com website yesterday:

"Paris Hilton Robbed of $2 Million in Jewl Heist"?

Clicking on the headline took me to Hollywood Life.net - where the 'Jewl' typo obviously originated.

Hollywood Life.net seems to have picked up the story from the Los Angeles Times - which at least managed to spell its headline correctly.

Perhaps Mail.com should get its news from the LA Times rather than from Hollywood Life.net?

And I do appreciate the irony of writing about this story myself. Blogging can be so parasitic...
