We regret the error: its a phrase that appears in newspapers almostdaily, the standard notice that something went terribly wrong inthe reporting, editing, or printing of an article. From CraigSilverman, the proprietor of www.RegretTheError.com (one of theInternets most popular media-related websites) comes a collectionof funny, shocking, and sometimes disturbing journalistic slip-upsand corrections. On display are all types of media inaccuracy -from fuzzy math to obiticide (printing the obituary of a personvery much alive and well) to complete and utter ethical lapses.While some of the errors can be laugh-out-loud funny, the bookcontains a sobering journey through the history of media mistakes(including the outrageous hoaxes that dominated newspapers duringthe circulation wars of the 19th-century) and a serious muck-rakinginvestigation of contemporary journalism's lack of accountabilityto the public. It shines a spotlight on the medias carelessness andthe sometimes tragic and calamitous consequences of weak ornon-existent fact checking.
