    The Toyota one is confusing.

    The last chance sale event does belong to Toyota, so why is this one wrong? It seems the possessive is perfectly fine here.

    Unless this is just an add, and then nevermind.

    It's her new book!

    "Nothing Get"
    by Greta

    That Greta. She get's it, she sure does!

    I recall reading somewhere that Fox might be intentionally getting these wrong — it's a semiotic signal aimed at telling people — hey, those of you who cannot stand grammar snobs, we're the news channel for you!

    Similar to how Bush downplayed his Yale education, saying he did not learn anything at all while there. In the words of his priceless commencement address, "and the C students out there, you too can be president!".

    Apparently a lot gets by the editors.

    Nothing gets by Gretta, except for an errant apostrophe.

    Lots of things get by Greta.. namely the fact that she's part of a cult. XD

    Michel S.: I recall reading somewhere that Fox might be intentionally getting these wrong

    It's all part of their campaign against imaginary Nazis, grammar or otherwise.

    Oh boy.

    Yup. A lotta apostrophe abuse out there… and much of it goes unreported. Some were – thankfully – brought to light here, but God knows how many others will forever live in darkness.
