LA Times Still Conducting Witness Relocation Program For Writers Of Corrected Commentaries!

October 5, 2005

Same-sex marriage: In a commentary Tuesday about Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's veto of a bill giving legal protection to same-sex couples, Assemblyman Mark Leno (D-San Francisco) was incorrectly identified as a state senator.

As usual, there is no link to the story, and no clue as to who the commentator is to help readers find the correction. So... what are the odds that it belongs to the most factually challenged columnist in the LA Times - Robert Scheer?

Well... about 100%.,1,7082850.column

And guess what other subterfuge the Times engages in? Instead of acknowledging the error as they do in other people's columns - they this time they made the change WITHOUT acknowledging the error within the article.

I guess at the Los Angeles Times, rules don't apply to everyone.
