Washington City Paper Runs Corrections for Daily

Noticing that The Washington Times hadn't run a single correction in nine days, City Paper editor Erik Wemple decided to provide that service in his own pages. Wrong name, wrong block, wrong date of crime: Such errors will be duly noted and corrected in the alt-weekly. City Paper will "manage this critical function," Wemple writes, because the Times "lacks the resources to run its own corrections."
