Times Correction Watch (Part Two)
Interestingly, I could hardly tell the difference between this actual, bona fide correction and the "for the record" corrections the Times usually runs. It was a serious error, but serious errors often are corrected in the "for the record" section. I guess what made the difference was that the Times could have been sued over this.
Is that what it takes to get the Times to run a an actual, bona fide correction? Does it have to be bad enough to warrant a lawsuit if not corrected?
