Clearly, our readers are ruthless. The scanner-like eye, they let nothing pass, tracking down the slightest typo, the slightest mistake in the newspaper. Thus, sent by a reader, this photo of the pope, smiling and waving to the crowd, with this caption: “Pope Francis arrives in Saint Peter’s Square for the general audience of May 4, 2023.” Sarcastic comment: “That, that’s is a scoop! Let’s say La Croix was just a step ahead, and it’s better to be early than late.
Another scoop raised by another reader, on January 25, in an article talking about cars (I quote La Croix) of “hydric models (instead of hybrids) rechargeable”. And my correspondent flaunts: “Of course! Here is the solution: to recharge our cars with water! We understand that the oil lobbies hid the news from us. Fortunately, La Croix is there! No mercy, I tell you. If ever, dear reader, science succeeds one day in replacing gasoline with water to run cars, I hope you will be sporty enough to salute, in retrospect, the prophetic clairvoyance of La Croix. Of course, these remonstrations must arrive right at the time of the publication, in La Croix, of the Barometer of confidence in the media. Dear readers, it’s my turn to reveal a scoop to you: these typos are on purpose. It’s to test your vigilance. The test is successful. Well done and thank you!
