Tribune Correction

Yesterday the Tribune published the final tallies for last week’s municipal election, but they published incorrect figures. Once the Trib acknowledged the mistake, I commented that they should publish the correction on the front page of today’s paper. Apparently, this flies in the face of convention, because corrections are almost always printed on page 2 of any newspaper. But given the nature of this correction – correct totals for a contentious election – I figured that a front-page correction was warranted; people often cite newspapers as the final authority on topics such as this. And today – Thursday – I am happy to report that the Tribune did indeed publish a front-page correction. Good job.
