Satirical Shallow

Tomorrow’s Corrections Today, vol. 3

Slated to appear on the New York Times’ Corrections page, April 20, 2004:

Because of an editing error, an article by Julie Flaherty in yesterday’s Business section, “Many Started Web Logs for Fun, But Bloggers Need Money, Too,” accidentally misstated the number of internet users who read Web logs, or blogs. The article claimed that blogs “are frequented by only about 10 percent of people who use the Internet.” The corrected sentence should have said, “are frequented by only about 10 people who use the internet.” The Times regrets the error.
