Budget: $5,000,000. Budget for Proofreaders: $0.

The White House has a budget of $5 million annually for its communications team.

However, apparently none of that has been wasted on proofreaders, since press releases and diplomatic agreements include numerous misspellings, including the President’s very name.

I was going to make some comment about having to pay extra attention to uncommon words such as brand names and people’s names, which often plagues interactive agency communications that misspell their clients’ names or even their own agency names.  However, this problem with the communications team seems to go far beyond that and into lack of attention to detail.

For $172,200 a year, I could head up the effort.  White House, click the Sez Who? link for contact info!
