How Dumb Is The New York Times?

Does the New York Times still employ any managing editors or copy editors who know anything?  First, today’s story on “corporate inversions.”  Check out the hed carefully:

But what example do they feature in the photo in the story?

Hortons copy

So I guess Canada now counts as “overseas” for the NY Times.

The Times is apparently more ignorant of Christianity, which, last time I heard, was a major religion even in New York City.  In a story back in July about pilgrims to the Holy Land, Mollie Hemingway captured this blooper (since corrected online):

Burial copy

I guess it just depends on what the meaning of the word “is” is.
