Of course, sometimes it's the copy that's wrong and not the talent.
There's a Medtronic funder running on WBUR now that was clearly
written by someone[1] who didn't understand the difference between a
slash (that's "/") and a backslash ("\").  I've heard at least two
different people read this funder, and I have to believe that they
wouldn't both have gotten it wrong, so the inevitable conclusion is
that the script has it wrong.
