Spell my name, spell my name-some self indulgence

ABC HEADLINE: "Bolts from the blue: reactions to Hamilton" posted ABC news online The Drum 1 March 2010 - First posted Fri Feb 26, 2010 5:18pm AEDT

ABC REPORTED: ABC's The Drum editor Jonathan Green reported on reactions to opinion pieces by Clive Hamilton. The report included the following statement:

"Next week: The Drum-Unleashed will feature a series of pieces commissioned from noted writers on the sceptic side of the climate science debate. Included will be Alan Moran, Tom Switzer, Mark Hendriks, Bob Carter and Jo Nova." As Quantum online point out in their article "Sceptics in from the cold?" :

" that should be Marc Hendrickx whose website is ABC News Watch here…"

You inflated our head calling us 'noted'
But atrocious spelling left our ego demoted.
Was this a sign of respect denied?
Or just journalists' skills on the slide?
Please, correct the name you misquoted.

It's not like Marc Hendrickx is unknown to The Drum. I wonder what that Klive Hambleton would think?

ABC Ed Pol 5.2.2 (c) be Accurate.

OUTCOME: Pending

COMMENT: Can't bat, can't bowl, can't spell...time for some remedial journalism.
