Almost every spelling error you can think of has indeed been made at one time or another. It's only that before Google came along, we never knew all the places the misspelling was made, and by whom. That's changed now; among the billions of pages indexed, every celebrity, title, phrase, and word exists in dozens of variants. To see for yourself, just enter a misspelled word and ignore Google's spelling suggestion for a moment (and if you want to limited your search to only a certain news source, use the "site" operator, e.g. site:cnn.com).
Here's a "best of spelling," courtesy of the Google search engine:
