“Corrections & Clarifications” in The Palm Beach Post.

There are more corrections in the Post today (3/3), page A2, below the fold (as opposed to prominently displayed items “above the fold”). Don’t get the print edition? Too bad. Because corrections can only be read in the print edition of the Post and are not available for their online readers.

FYI. Some newspapers such as The New York Times have what’s called a “public editor” or an ombudsman to get the news correct for their readers. Below is what appeared in last Wednesday’s (3/1) Palm Beach Post. Is this really a “reporting error” of an error by the news editor?

Isn’t it the job of the news editor to verify information prior to publication?
