Let the record show . . . the Tribune was not as negligent as all that.
In a Thursday Bleader post I assailed the Tribune for (1) letting the headline “Who’s fault?” show up Wednesday in its sports pages, and (2) not correcting the faux pas by Thursday online.
Denying neither charge, Tribune sports editor Mike Kellams has pointed out what I missed: the mea culpa — compete with a drawing of a dunce cap — the Tribune had posted online and in Thursday’s paper. It can be seen here by following this link and scrolling down.
“How could we possibly have gotten that wrong? Because some days we’re just stupid, that’s how,” explained the Tribune.
Unfortunately, having said what needed to be said, the Tribune forgot to correct the website. But that’s since been done.
