Ernie Would Not Be Pleased
Long gone are the days when AP's Ernie Pyle -- an ace reporter by the standards of any era -- could use the pronoun "we" in describing the Allied struggle against the Axis.
How true. Except that this great journalist worked for the Scripps Howard newspaper chain, not the AP. I have asked the Journal to correct its error. Let's see what they do. Hopefully they'll be more forthcoming than the New York Times, which has steadfastly refused to correct a worse error.
