It used to be that news readers had the time, and knowledge, to read the news content prior to reading it.

Any errors could then be attended to and corrected or deleted as required.

Most of the news, both TV and radio, contains very poorly written content and is ungrammatical.

It must make it very difficult for those with English as a second language to understand what is actually meant.
