    For my spelling geek brothers and sisters...



    Someone at Fox News failed to proofread their content. Note the word "THIER" underlined in red above.

    There vs. They're vs. Their vs. Thier
    Their house is over there.
    They're going to their house.
    There is only one way to get there.

    Spelling their correctly (not thier) is a different problem.
    Unfortunately, it's one of those words that, as you stare
    at it for a while, looks wrong with either spelling.

    As with separate/seperate, think er = error:

    Think: er = error:
    their = correct
    thier = error
