Today’s “CORRECTION” published in The Palm Beach Post.

Yesterday’s blaring front page headline below the masthead spanning the entire page beneath the logo “REAL NEWS STARTS HERE” was this:

PBSO to pay Dontrell Stephens $25M

And here is today’s correction:

Because of an editing error, a headline in Tuesday’s Palm Beach Post incorrectly said that the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office would pay Dontrell Stephens $25 million. PBSO paid the statutorily required amount of $200,000 based on the verdict. Stephens must get the balance of the $22 million-plus verdict from the Florida legislature. The story appeared on the front page.
