F***up of the week

. . . Alessandra Stanley of the New York Times. (The Times? Say it ain't so!)

I truly hate to sound like a broken record, but this is what happens when a newspaper doesn't have copy editors who know how to check facts and have enough time to do so.

Be sure to read the comments. I suspect half or more of them come from copy editors, a large number of whom probably have been laid off.


  1. Wow, how terrible!

    Sounds like a bad rough draft.

    Someone was having A REALLY BAD DAY!

  2. It is hard to believe a paper as august as the Times would keep on a serial screwup like Stanley.
