MSM Deals with Mistakes

Via Gordon, The Environmental Republican, comes an Editor's Note in the LA Times.

Someone at the LA Times screwed up. Badly. A report was written and virtually every point in it was subsequently corrected or retracted.

The LA Times fired the writer. Gordon asks whether any of his editors or sub-editors were disciplined. Probably not, but transparency and the ability to admit a mistake (albeit after causing damage) is commendable.

Are you listening Reuters?
