Today's peek into the old newsreader tells me that the mighty New York Times ran an online correction to their 8-day-old as-factual transmission of Eric Crafton's fictional claim about the California legislature. I do not know whether the correction was also made in hard copy, but does it really matter after a week? The damage is already done.
What's the big deal about transmitting Eric Crafton's fairy tales without critical dissection and verification? The Nashville City Paper does it all the time.
