Copy editor, where art thou?

Port Fourchon, Louisiana (CNN) — It sounds like a Hollywood movie. An impending disaster — think the disabled spacecraft in “Apollo 13” or the asteroid hurtling toward Earth in “Armageddon” — prompts a daring intervention by engineers to save the day.

This time, the threat is oil gushing from a broken well on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico that could destroy livelihoods and irreplaceable coastal wetlands.

CNN.com seems to think that “ ‘Apollo 13’ “ was a Hollywood movie. Really? Seriously?

I would think that any copy editor would have corrected this. Does CNN.com have copy editors?
