I do think there is less awareness of grammar than in decades previous--witness news anchors who consistently utter sentences with dangling modifiers, or say things like "Bodies were laying all over the field."

But if people are not educated to hear those errors, then, yep, they slide right by. So it is with reading. I can say "I was consistently poked out of the story by grammatical errors" and if another reader says "What errors? You're just being Ms Picky Pedant!" then . . . I guess language is changing. As it always has.
