A Correction is Due 
Check out This article from Ranting Profs.

Essentially, a New York Times reporter reported that a US convoy, upon being ambushed, opened fire on a civilian vehicle following the convoy, killing several members of a family.

Since then, investigators have determined that the family was not killed by US bullets, but by shrapnel from the 155mm round used by insurgents to plant an IED.

It's worth a few minutes to read the whole thing. (Unfortunately, you have to pay to get the full NY Times article from the archives.)

Now, check out the NY Times corrections page, and see if it's on there. It wasn't yesterday, and it's not today.

You can email Dan Okrent, the New York Times' public editor at public@nytimes.com
