"How Did This Happen?" 
The New York Times Public Editor looks into how the Times ran an article with seven factual errors in it.
Not a huge deal in my book. Just an interesting look at how the sausage is made.

It's amazing to me how newspaper folks can be ready to commit sepukku over trivial shit like whether Cronkite was 64 or 65 years old when he retired, while at the same time glossing over the institutional biases that lead to David Carr mis-analyzing the entire war - and then not giving a shit, Purple Stars, Congressional Medals of Honor for Songwriters, Sadr Stupid, and this whole bag of shit.

Splash, out
