What'sa mata with Metro?

Look, we know the Metro is mostly owned by Swedes, but we didn't realize it was actually copy-edited in Stockholm:

Mata shmata

Can you imagine how that would have read
if they had attempted to go into FPD
(Full Perv Detail) the way the Herald did?

Talk about all the news that's not fit to
print!

I believe the Mata is a crime-ridden beech-veneer coffee table.

Maybe that lady who got EwwPerved could have used a Mata for protection. Better yet, Mr. Pervpants should have worn one himself.

As opposed to anti mata, I guess.

But, as you pointed out, it definitely IS a laughing mata!

In the front page headline, Teh Metro referred to a reduction in Ovarian Cancer among birth control pill users as a "reduced infection rate".

That's not just stupid, it is dangerous. Not only does ovcxr have nothing to do with HPV that we know of, the article gives the impression that using birth control pills protects one from infection!!!!

Further proof the Metro is written either by an MIT AI experiment or monkeys comes from Random Squeegee, who documents the paper's interesting use of "yesterday," as well as the whole Mata thing:

... Mata. Mata! I thought that maybe Mata was a separate entity from the MBTA, and it just so happened that I'd never heard it mentioned until now. But a much better and more accurate thought would be that the Metro editors take the short bus in to work. And good for them, working in a real office. God bless those goofy bastards. ...

Eeka, meanwhile, suggest the Metro was simply gearing up for articles in Spanish: La historia indica que el MBTA mata menos pasajeros este año, pero... (basically: "Cool, the MBTA killed fewer passengers this year, but ...").
