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.
