I'm not saying Fox News is stupid, but...

... sometimes it takes more than a spellchecker to edit an article.

Now, I'm not talking about the occasional mistake between "affect" and "effect". Nor am I talking about noun-verb disagreements with the word "data", which is plural. And it's hard to use the word "irregardless" correctly.

But screwing up "tenet" for "tenant"? In the lead sentence of the article, in which the accuracy of the data is paramount? (Note: this is correct, as the noun-verb agreement is for accuracy - singular, not data).

That's what Fox News did. And it hasn't been corrected yet. And in case it was, I screencapped it to make sure that it was captured for history.

The first sentence reads: "Has a central tenant of global warming just collapsed?"

You know what they say about people that live in glass houses, don'tcha?
