Copy editors needed
It looks like the New York Times was seriously shocked by Sunday's news. So shocked, it seems, that that they left grammatical errors all over their headline story about Lehman Brothers :
A.I.G. will be the next test. Ratings agencies threatened to downgrade A.I.G.’s credit rating if it does not raise $40 billion by Monday morning, a step that would crippled the company. A.I.G. had hoped to shore itself up, in party by selling certain businesses, but potential bidders, including the private investment firms Kohlberg Kravis Roberts and TPG, withdrew at the last minute because the government refused to provide a financial guarantee for the purchase. A.I.G. rejected an offer by another investor, J. C. Flowers & Company.I think the copy editors must have been on the phone to their brokers.
