If only hate could change false to true

From news magazine's corrections page (via instapundit):
The Jan. 25 article "Is the President Panicking" originally stated that Fox News led the charge against Bill Clinton in the '94 midterm elections. Fox News did not come into being until 1996. The story has been corrected. [Correction made 1/27/10]
Facts, spin: when attacking an enemy, what's the difference?

On the other hand, it is to Salon's credit that they corrected this error within two days. Contrast that with the New York Times which waited 49 and half years to correct (PDF) an editorial claiming that space flight was impossible and ridiculing Robert H. Goddard for believing otherwise. Prof. Goddard (1882-1945) is regarded as the father of modern rocketry and NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD, was named after him.

The New York Times, of course, has learned its lesson. Instead of opining on the subtle and complex science of rocketry, they now write about global warming.
