Where have the sports editors gone?

Do newspaper sports editors exist in Nepal? I read three different articles about the AFC Presidents Cup in three different English newspapers and each one of them spelled the name of participating Tajikistan team, Regar-TadAZ, incorrectly.

I understand that the ANFA press-release was probably written in Nepali and thus the journalists had to translate it into English, but isn't it their duty to check the facts, spellings, etc.? Have they not heard of Google, Wikipedia, FIFA/AFC Official websites?
