Correction of the Year
Craig Silverman's excellent blog dedicated to newspaper corrections, Regret the Error, has just posted its feature on the corrections of the year. The one below only earned runner-up status for Silverman, but it's a winner in my book:
The Sentinel-Review (Woodstock, Ontario):
In an article in Monday’s newspaper, there may have been a misperception about why a Woodstock man is going to Afghanistan on a voluntary mission. Kevin DeClark is going to Afghanistan to gain life experience to become a police officer when he returns, not to shoot guns and blow things up.
The Sentinel-Review apologizes for any embarrassment this may have caused.
