Sometimes it's the little things: It's the little mistakes that you see in each day's newspaper that make you wonder what the heck's going on. You know the "paper of record," The New York Times is having trouble, when it creates a new problem for itself by making a mistake in a correction.
This story by William J. Broad, misattributed authorship of the book "War on Iraq: What Team Bush Doesn't Want You to Know" to former U.N. weapons inspector Scott "I Stay Bought" Ritter.
No problem, run a correction.
Unfortunately, the correction refers to a Scott "Ridder."
Doesn't somebody check this stuff? It's not like it's a math problem.
