Not Comics: Newspaper Prints Embarrassing Typo in Political Ad

The Kansas City Star is reporting on the power of good copy editors in today’s (August 5th) edition.

From the story:

A word in a 10-paragraph statement of the full-page ad supporting Samons was supposed to say “assets,” the newspaper’s publisher wrote in a public Facebook post Saturday morning.

Instead, Samons’ ad contained this sentence: “I believe in taking care of those who work for you, as loyal employees are your biggest asses.”

I like loyal employees and I cannot lie.

The Star regrets the error, although not all that much.
