Day Five - And LA City Incorporation Date - ALMOST - Corrected!


This is going to be a close call in the (name deleted) department of the LA Times! See bottom of previous post for info on the in-house LA Times betting line on when the incorporation post was going to be corrected.

At just after midnight - the story has STILL not been corrected on-line - and it is still wrong! And on the corrections page - the correction has not yet appeared.

However ... when one does a search for incorporated - the correction now comes up as going to be printed in the 'A' section.

So... does whoever had the before midnight correction for tonight - win or lose his bet? The website does have a correction on the website - but yet the on-line story itself is still not corrected.

Below is the correction as WILL be printed a little later tomorrow morning.

In the meantime, my solution for this dilemma? Thrown inkwells at twenty paces! My opinion is, though - the story is clearly still incorrect if you can read the story on-line and the story is still incorrect - so the error has not be corrected - yet!
