A correction to a story that ran in The Oregonian
in September made a list of the year's worst newspaper mistakes nationwide at Regret The Error
today. The journalism website, which tracks corrections, retractions and clarifications in the media, dubs its year-end (dis)honors "The Crunks."
On Sept. 26, The Oregonian
ran the following correction:
A headline on Page One on Saturday should have made clear that Oregon Health & Science University will be studying the effects of meth, not cooking it.
The headline they were correcting: State's latest meth cook: OHSU
can take some solace in keeping good company. RTE's list also cited whoopsies from The Los Angeles Times
and New York Times
, among others.
