One Month Waiting for a Correction

Filed under: Dog Trainer,General — Patterico @ 6:19 am



It’s now one entire month since I told the L.A. Times about an error made by an op-ed contributor, who claimed that George W. Bush had “[e]rroneously said Nelson Mandela was dead.”

One month. I wrote the Readers’ Representative on New Year’s Day.

  1. Oh you bloggers! You just have an agenda.

  2. Again: LAT cringing in embarrassment behind the facade of incorrectability, or just obtusely arrogant? [Bloggers] report, you decide.

  3. Paging Mr. Zell!

    [NOTE: I found this comment in moderation. I’ve decided WordPress has it in for Bradley J. Fikes but at least his comments get posted faster than an LA Times’ correction. — DRJ]

  5. You might want to count your blessings. At least she hasn’t buried the correction in a column where she attacks you personally as a partisan hater.

  6. No surprise. For nearly three weeks the Times has failed to make a simple correction of an obvious mistake — the spelling of Jonah Goldberg’s last name as “Goldman.” The readers’ representative acknowledged may e-mail, but, just like Patterico, I got no replay two weeks later when I asked why no correction to a mistake that was plain for all to see. Arrogance rules.

  7. There should be a Pulizter for dogged doughtiness in seeking corrections.

  8. There’s more likely to be a Pulitzer Prize for dogged doughtiness in avoiding making a correction.

    Yeah, you could make it a special Pulitzer in memory of Walter Duranty.
