Guardian Website Screengrab

The "W" and the "R" are two keys apart on a keyboard, but an unfortunate sub-editor at the Guardian's website evidently picked the wrong one when he wanted to headline a piece "Ranking the TV commentators."

Still, all publicity is good publicity, and once the screengrab was taken, the story was doing the rounds on Twitter.

Unsurprisingly, the Guardian swiftly remedied their error.
