Oh, i'm not really sure to be honest. Maybe you are right. I just thought if you were addressing someone or something you use "is". Something like "NBC is awesome" just seems to sound more natural than "NBC are awesome".

Anyways, regardless of the quality of the piece and the source, i'm happy we are seeing less and less of this sort rushed, misinformed reporting that plagued us for so many years. *cough* espn *cough*

Why insult the mentally challenged?

This is trivial when compared to the dozens of horrific mistakes all mainstream news outlets make on any given day. Sensationalism, rhetoric, propaganda, ect, is the norm. It's appalling, and that's what should be pointed out.
