Correcting the Record

Friday, November 15, 2013


This week saw a couple of attempts at explaining journalistic mistakes. The first was a terse apology from 60 minutes over a botched report on the Benghazi compound attack in 2012. The second was a re-examination of The New York Times decision to delay publication of an article warrantless wire tapping for over a year. Bob examines both of these stories - and how each outlet handled them.

CBS has shot itself in the foot about a few things lately, all to the benefit of the GOP. What's NPR doing to distance itself from the narrative first/"facts" second reportage, rather than just post-mortems?

Can you get the new NPR media critic, and maybe an ombud, on this program?
