I'm Not Sure They REALLY Regret the Errors

Regret The Error is a blog that collects "corrections, retractions, clarifications, and trends regarding accuracy and honesty in North American media." This may well be a NewsFilterFilter, but any site that gives me "In fact, it is impossible to determine the linguistic background of the demonstrator in the monkey suit" is okay in my book.

NewsFilterFilter is probably better stated as MetaNewsFilter.

Are they not aware that "Apologies of the Week" is a copyrighted feature?

Never forget that essential journalistic principle, "Err on A-1, correct on G-6".

(Murdoch publications may substitute "Lie" for "Err", "retract" for "correct", and "not at all" for "on G-30").

Grumble. And the reader may substitute "6" for "30" in the above...
