Ernie Pyle Can Rest Easy Now

The Wall Street Journal published a letter today pointing out that the great war correspondent Ernie Pyle worked for Scripps-Howard newspaper chain, not the AP. This is not a small matter in the journalism biz. Ernie deserved better.

I pointed this out in a previous item. Just to be sure the Journal knew about it, I sent over an email to the Journal. No correction.

The Journal, in both its news and editorial pages, upholds the highest standards of journalism. That's why I'm a little dismayed. When an error is pointed out to a newspaper, you run a correction. You don't wait until someone writes a letter to the editor.
