Poor Marie Osmond. Not only does she have to endure the tragic loss of her son, CNN adds insult to injury by spelling her name “Osmand” instead of “Osmond.” Marie Osmond is not new to the world of celebrity. Before she was a spokesperson for NutriSystem, I remember watching her croon her country songs when I was just a pre-teen (a few short years ago). I’ll have to check my notes, but I don’t think CNN has a problem spelling “Kardashian.”
Exacerbating the matter are those on gather.com who post frequent updates on the “breaking” news story, but who absolutely refuse to run spell check.
