An e-mailer just hit The Star pretty hard for a caption on a photo in FYI today that puts Oslo in Sweden, not Norway:
"It is really sad that our education system has neglected world geography for so many years, and as a consequence writers don't have a clue about the world, but even more upsetting is that your paper can not afford a fact checker. Google is free, you might suggest its use by the writers."
Ouch. For the record, there is a large staff of copy editors at The Star. This error was noticed by the Features copy chief, but it still made it to print without getting fixed.
