Sadly, this is the state of American journalism today. of all media does this:

Even if the Pennsylvania National Guard has some very small soldiers, the "journalists" should know that nobody mans drones. Words mean things. To quote the immortal Mark Twain: "In addition to these large rules, there are some little ones. These require that the author shall:
12. Say what he is proposing to say, not merely come near it.
13. Use the right word, not its second cousin.
14. Eschew surplusage.
15. Not omit necessary details.
16. Avoid slovenliness of form.
17. Use good grammar.
18. Employ a simple and straightforward style."
