Correction x 2

by Dan Ward

Kudos to the Orlando Sentinel for doing something today that you rarely see … running a correction both on A-2 and on the Opinions page.

Turns out the Sentinel labeled the wrong Windermere council member a “chump” based on an incorrect news report, so the paper corrected both the news report and the “chump” label.

It’s a common (and fair) complaint that corrections are almost never as prominent as the erroneous news report.  While that remains the case with this story, the Sentinel should be commended for taking an extra step to mend the damage from its original report.
