Editing errors

Even books from university presses have a typo or two. Newspaper stories, blogs, TV trailers, ... The number of errors seems to be rising. In addition to the carelessness that comes from being fast and first, I think it might be because the copy editors have been taught to read using look/say, not phonics, so the word looks right enough to them, despite the error.
