The Chronicle corrections section is an endless source of amusement.
Here’s the latest:
The decomposed bodies of two men were found Friday in the 3100 block of Penn City Road. A brief on Page B2 of Saturday’s City & State section gave an incorrect street name.
Wouldn’t one think that the street where decomposed bodies of two men were discovered would be a pretty important fact to get right?
And wouldn’t one also think that such crucial basic facts would be double checked by editors, so that corrections wouldn’t be necessary?
This is pretty basic journalism, but the basics seem regularly to elude the Chronicle.
