Complaining about the Media has become dangerously close to being listed as one of my hobbies over the years. I had no idea that anyone enjoyed it as much as I did, but apparently someone else has been publicizing media mistakes on grand scale since at least April 2005.
In proving that many news-hounds aren’t housebroken, Craig Silverman of Ordinary Media has spotlighted many a pile of poo — and rubbed their noses in it — by posting their back-page apologies, retractions and clarifications to an extremely enjoyable blog, Regret the Error.
The December 13th posting, Crunks ’05: The Year in Media Errors and Corrections, conjures up some of the best and brightest calamities of 2005.
Kudos, Craig! If we offered awards, you’d get one.
