A review of CBS News by SASS. written on Saturday 5th of February 2011
WHILE WATCHING CBS NEWS VIA sKY NEWS THIS EVENING, YOUR ITEM ON THE EVACUATION OF US CITIZENS FROM EGYPT MADE ME SHOUT YET AGAIN AT MY TELEVISION.
THE REASON? FOR THE NTH TIME, I HAVE HEARD THE WORD 'ALTERNATE' USED WRONGLY INSTEAD OF 'ALTERNATIVE'.
'ALTERNATE' MEANS: EVERY OTHER, AS IN 1, 3, 5, 7, ETC.. 'ALTERNATIVE' MEANS, DIFFERENT;A CHOICE.
I HEARD A HARVARD UNIVERSITY STUDENT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE LAST WEEK, AT A BROADCAST LECTURE, AND i EXPECTED BETTER FROM SUCH A PRESTIGIOUS CENTRE OF LEARNING. PLEASE MAKE YOUR REPORTERS AND NEWSREADERS AWARE THAT THESE TWO WORDS HAVE ENTIRELY DIFFERENT MEANINGS.
THANK YOU - SANDRA BENEDICT - LINCOLN, ENGLAND .
