Toronto Star might be looking for an editor

I’m always amazed at how many typos and grammatical errors I see in newspapers like the Toronto Star or the Globe and Mail. I make my fair share of grammatical errors on this blog but I don’t have a full-time editor looking over my shoulder.

Today’s business section (page B3) had this headline:

IS THIS BELL’S iPHONE KILLER?
Telco aims to steals Rogers’ thunder

The Star gets full marks for using a lowercase i for iPhone but “aims to steals”? This is the type of error I expect to see on a sign in front of a community centre!
