leave a comment »

Most every journalist has a horror tale about an over-eager sub-editor destroying a particularly brilliant piece of literature, but Examiner Sports Desk writer Simon Lewis must be scratching his head at the butchering of one fairly straightforward phrase in today’s rugby coverage.

What the middle-aged blokes with their pints in hand and wearing the trademark Sarries fez made of Mr Tempah’s winning brand of rap, drum and bass one can only imagine

What Lewis clearly meant was that London MC Tiny Tempah plays a winning brand of rap and drum n’ bass, but presumably some lunatic with a red pen has gone to town on and it rendered it something incomprehensible. Unless “drum” and “bass” have suddenly become distinct genres since this morning.
