Dear "Handelsblatt": Rolls-Royce is simply not Rolls-Royce

Why is journalism in a credibility crisis? Also because work is sometimes done very superficially. Even with renowned newspapers like the Handelsblatt.

Everyone makes mistakes. But it is embarrassing when such a serious hammer is printed. The Handelsblatt author in Bangkok certainly didn't know that Rolls-Royce is for the layout designer or graphic designer. In order to illustrate the article that Rolls-Royce has agreed to pay a fine of 755 million euros, the symbol that was chosen was chosen as an illustration and has nothing to do with the fine: the Rolls-Royce hood ornament Emily.

And the caption in the Munich BMW four-cylinder is also likely to have caused annoyance: "Rolls-Royce hood ornament: massive corruption in emerging countries." So at the latest there is the question of the competence of a large business newspaper, the final editor of which does not know that Rolls-Royce Royce Motor Cars and the PLC of the same name have nothing to do with each other except for the brand name. Whoever formulated the caption cannot blame the error on the graphic. So much thoughtlessness should be noticed when you read the text. Or has the Handelsblatt saved the final editorial office?

However, other media besides the Handelsblatt made this mistake, which was corrected by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars in a special press release.
