Apology: Due to Getting Caught At Intentional Editing, We Now Admit an Editing Error – the New Yorker Magazine
Bill Quick

Althouse: The New Yorker’s lame effort at un-embarrassing Jeffrey Toobin.

Today, there’s a notation at the bottom of the article that says: “Due to an editing error, some words were omitted from one of Paul Verrilli’s quotes. They have been restored.” [ADDED: The New Yorker's correction gets Verrilli's first name wrong, commenter mccullough catches.]

Well, see, there was no editing error.  The article was edited to provide the slant the editors wanted to achieve.  It only became an “error” after they got caught.

That’s pretty much how all editing errors and corrections in the leftist MSM work.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
