This is taken from an AP news article...
The makeover of "CBS Evening News" has been spiked and executive producer Rome Hartman reassigned in favor of veteran Rick Kaplan, who has made the newscast much more harder-edged and newsy.
Newsy? Much more harder-edged?

One of those isn't even a word and the other is just terrible grammar.

Me caveman. Me start job as reporter for AP.

I read an AP article last week about Karl Rove's car that sounded like it was taken from a blogsite. The AP is a CBS.

"much more harder-edged." Oy.

Something can be "more hard" or it can be "harder" but we all learned in about fourth grade that it cannot be "more harder" anything.

An example of horrifically lazy writing.
