'Jew Jersey'

Ahhh, end of the year lists. So easy, so pithy, so... many. This one's less of a "Top 10" than a compilation. As with other years there will be more.

Patsy Bluth, pulling from We Regret the Error, writes: The year's best media corrections. Read all of them. Especially these:


The Denver Daily News would like to offer a sincere apology for a typo in Wednesday's Town Talk regarding New Jersey's proposal to ban smoking in automobiles. It was not the author's intention to call New Jersey 'Jew Jersey.'
From the Dallas Morning News:
Norma Adams-Wade's June 15 column incorrectly called Mary Ann Thompson-Frenk a socialist. She is a socialite.
Reuters:
“Please read in paragraph nine: ‘about 27 million Soviet citizens died’ ... instead of ... ‘more than 27 Soviet citizens died’.”
