My favorite correction of the week comes from Salon:

The Jan. 25 article “Is the President Panicking” originally stated that Fox News led the charge against Bill Clinton in the ’94 midterm elections. Fox News did not come into being until 1996.

It’s easy to forget there was once a world without Fox News, MSNBC and the other partisan media. The political world has changed immensely since Bill Clinton’s first term.

(The full story is here. Hat tip to Regret the Error.)

Do you think free access to journalism like this is important?
The Texas Observer depends on support from its members to keep telling stories like the one you are reading now. This fall we're looking for 200 more sustaining members—people like you who can give us as little as $0.99 per month. Your membership means we can continue shedding light on issues that might otherwise go unreported. Can we count on you?

Dave Mann is a former editor of the Observer.
