Blog showing oblique, not italics

When looking at my Blogger blog, I notice that the italics of the Merriweather font (within the post body) are not true italics, but presumably oblique. Comparing this with Merriweather on the Google Fonts website, the difference is clear.

My blog:
www.blog.chloesilver.ca

Merriweather on Google Fonts:
https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Merriweather

I have seen this question/issue discussed in numerous other posts on this forum, but there is never a resolution as the respondents always claim that this issue is caused by a possibly corrupted font on the OP's computer. But I see two different types of "italic" when comparing my blog to Google Fonts.

Hi again Gábor,

Thank you for pointing out the "Simple" blog design - I suppose you were inferring that that was somehow the cause.

If that is the case, can you tell me how to override it so I achieve the proper italic style?

Thanks again.

Hello Chloe,

I have escalated this as a bug to Google. it does not seem to me that you are doing anything wrong and this should not be happening.
