Here is my best explanation:

'check for errors' is the definition.

'degree of spirit regarding publicity' is the wordplay.
'degree of spirit' becomes 'proof' (term for the strength of an alcoholic spirit).
'regarding' becomes 're'.
'publicity' becomes 'ad' (advert).
'proof'+'re'+'ad'='PROOFREAD'

'shown in' is the link.
