Epigraph
Dedication
This book, much like my collection of radio and TV Bloopers, which deals with human error in broadcasting, is dedicated to the unsuspecting victims of typos in the various forms of printed media.

Psychologically, the causes of typos seem to be similar to the causes of broadcasting Bloopers. I have discovered that the reasons for spoonerisms, Freudian slips, and many other forms of linguistic problems committed in the spoken word also trigger typos.

It is my sincere hope that the public will derive as much fun from "All the News Unfit to Print" as it does from my collection of unintended indiscretions before the microphone and camera.
