Why Velonews pisses me off so much

So they've got a lead story about Boonen today, and in the second paragraph they list his age as 24. He's actually 25 and turns 26 in October. Is it that hard to go to the QS website and confirm his age before you start your story?

Maybe it's nitpicking, but to me it's just sloppy, lazy journalism. And yes, most of their coverage makes me break out in a rant. F*ck all.
