Mr. Rewrite knows AP is trying hard, but it needs to pay better attention to its headlines, which stream live onto many sites, including its Mobile News Network. It's particularly maddening given the subject of this article: a newspaper fighting for survival.
For the record, one "tries" to spell headlines correctly. Grammarians -- and Mr. Rewrite isn't one by a longshot -- say "tries" is the third-person present-tense indicative form of "try."
Quite a few others in the MSM should try reading this post. There are hundreds of botched references to "trys" on Google News. The exception seems to be rugby, in which the plural of try is "trys" in the articles Mr. Rewrite reviewed.
