From a news question asked to viewers:
"Should the government bailout the auto makers?"
The phrasing wasn't exactly the same but the error was there: "bailout."
"Bailout" is a noun; "to bail [space] out" is a verb.
"The bailout is not going well." (noun)
"I would like the government to bail out my bank." (verb)
