80% of NYC High School Grads Not Illiterate -- Daily Intelligencer

Serious question.  Is Marcia Kramer the worst television news reporter in New York?  I don't usually watch TV news.  So my first exposure to her was her awful work on bike lanes, which gave me a poor first impression.  But now I've seen two incompetently produced stories this week alone … and both the work of Marcia Kramer.  Coincidence?  The first was that piece on Bloomberg's earbud awareness campaign.  And now there's this:
An unfortunate story on CBS New York Thursday carried this headline: "Officials: 80 Percent Of Recent NYC High School Graduates Cannot Read." It's a shocker, but it's also untrue. And to make things worse, the story that followed was riddled with typos.
