Layers of Editors and Fact-checking

Sphere: Related Content

The Philadelphia Inquirer made this little mistake in yesterdays print edition:

The Inquirer yesterday erred in publishing a photograph that accompanied a story on Judge Paul W. Tressler of Montgomery County Court. The photograph was not of the judge, shown at left, but of Howard Nevison, a sex offender sentenced by Tressler in 2006. The Inquirer regrets the error and apologizes.

But unlike blogs such as this, they have layers of editors to ensure that only factual stories are put in the esteemed, non-biased fishwrap. The same fish wrap that ran a 21-day endorsement of John Kerry in 2004.

Note that this correction was on the front page.
