A subtle error is still an error … although few care today

I’ve pointed up egregious errors in closed captioning, but today I’m doing a change of pace and show a subtle error that points up how no human is checking what goes onto your screen. In this episode of “Two and Half Men” that I recorded in August 2019, one character talks about poker and seeing his “whole” card. Well, obviously either an idiot spelled it or voice recognition. Either way, it’s an error since it should be the “hole” card (duh). I’m not criticizing closed captioning from a live broadcast, but here’s a show in syndication where the closed captioning can be edited – but isn’t by those in charge who are loathe to pay for editors (or even competent writers) today. I took the photo off our TV on Sept. 27, 2019, here in Naples, Fla. Click here for all my photos of errors in close captioning … (Remember: Click on the image for a bigger version – then click on that one for the full-size photo.)
