Those darn 11 year old teenagers!

A followup to yesterday's post about media hacks...

The Post-Star ran different articles yesterday and today about an 11 year old girl from Galway who appeared on the TV show Jeopardy!

In both cases, the headline referred to the 11 year old as a 'teen.'

While the prominence given to the Casey Anthony garbage (lead story on the front page for the 2nd day in a row today) doesn't inspire confidence in the 'news judgement [sic]' of the daily's 'professional editor,' repeatedly referring to an 11 year old as a teenager doesn't speak highly of the attention to detail provided by our region's most prominent news institution.
