Why oh why can’t we have a better press corp?

A May 31 Metro article about the Scripps National Spelling Bee misspelled last year’s winning word. The correct spelling is serrefine.

The paper, The Washington Post, had chosen the obviously incorrect "serrifine."  Here is my source.

Addendum: Whoops!  I have corrected my spelling error.  At least I wrote the mistaken spelling of the newspaper correctly rather than vice versa, force of habit took over I suppose.
