Oregonian Wins Major Journalism Award


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

The O 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.
