Dont News Photo Captions Need Sub-Editing Too?
A story getting a fair amount of attention on the IOL News website this morning tells of a shooting incident in a Mr. Price store in Cape Town yesterday.
Headlined “Bullets fly at Mr Price store”, the article includes a small photograph illustrating the event. The caption on this picture is what irked my English sensibilities this morning.
Police arrested suspect at Mr Price in Cape town Adderly street which had a turf with a security were a gun shortwent off.
Is it too much to ask of people with supposed professional journalism credentials to caption their images with a sentence that at the very least makes some sense? And to capitalise and punctuation that sentence correctly.
Or am I just being a bit of a pedantic Grammar Nazi here?
