More Mistakes at The Times

Oops, they did it again! This Editor & Publisher story points out the second major Times mistake in a week. First, The Times admitted it had misidentified the "hooded man" in an "iconic" photo from Abu Ghraib.

Now, one of the people the Times featured as a "victim" of Katrina was arrested for fraud and grand larceny yesterday.

E&P puts it well: "Again mirroring the Abu Ghraib episode, the newspaper revealed a surprising and inexplicable lapse in fact-checking on the part of a reporter and/or editor."

Too bad the Times can't live up to the standards it demands from others.

The NYT should just give it up and focus on the comics page.
