When Did She Welcome Him?

Submitter Bryan writes: Newsnight is the flagship news and current affairs program on the BBC here in the UK. So, when reporting on the Pope's visit, you'd expect them to know the difference between "Formerly" and "Formally"!
It's good to know the media in the UK is as diligent with their word usage as the US media. Apparently news coverage about the Queen and the Pope isn't worthy of an editorial double-check.

I'm going to formally sign-off today and go check to see if my formerly brewed coffee is still hot.
