In his Sunday LA Times column, Davis Shaw - correctly - finds fault with the lynching atmosphere that surrounds Mitch Albom's reporting what happened at a basketball game several days before the game actually took place. Compared with the amount of dishonest reporting that newspapers are filled with today - this is not a hanging offense.
Now if Mr. Shaw can only do a follow-up column on the reaction to his piece on how he and the LA Times are the true Gods of accuracy and bloggers are fact-mangling scum...
And, oh, by the way -- the four layers of editors and filters have - so far - missed two errors in the Times' coverage of Mitch Albom prior to their being printed. Those corrections are now on their corrections page.
