All "Fowled" Up

This bug appeared in a news report published by The Japan Times on Mar 16, 2014 by Harsh V. Pant. View the original news report.
Bug Type:  Typo, Spelling, Grammar


When I see the words “gobble power” I immediately think “Turkey.” That is the fowl and not the country, Turkey, and certainly not India. So when an oped published in The Japan Times referred to “India's emergence as a gobble power,” I think the writer meant “global power” and somehow the paper's copy just got all “fowled” up.



JT Cassidy has contacted The Japan Times and received the following response.

The Japan Times has fixed this error but without regretting it. I think it missed an opportunity to really dig in and talk turkey about its correction.
