Daily Nuzzo: Now with More Grammar!

Good news readers! The Associated Press Stylebook, aka the journalism student/high school dropout’s Bible, will be updated to include online and social media components. Right now, when I flip through my AP book, which was purchased my freshman year in college (82 B.C.), there is no entry for blog, podcast or dailynuzzo. Now, all of these items will be included and thoroughly scrutinized by the AP!

You can all rejoice in the fact that you will no longer have to silently hold back your rage at my atrocious run-on sentences and dangling modifiers. Once someone pays for and sends me this book, you’ll be seeing Newsday-worthy writing in no time!

Am I finally going to find out what "w00t w00t" means?

Good post, psyched about the Stylebook but missed some good joke opportunities.

Dangling modifier, c'mon need I say it? That's what she said...

Newsday-worthy. I would have said Long Island Press or Fugitive Finder...

I'm still waiting on the AP's WILD STYLE GUIDE.

So often I don't know whether a fool is "All-City" or just a plain-ole "Bomber".
