Errors of the Year

Journalist Craig Silverman, whose site Regret the Error.com is dedicated to spotting factual mistakes both serious and trivial in the media, has put together a fascinating and sometimes hilarious list of “The Year in Media Errors and Corrections.” There’s something for everyone — from an L.A. Times correction about a bear sighting in a supermarket (right bear, wrong day) to a massively strange accusation by a New Brunswick paper that the Canadian Prime Minister had pocketed a communion wafer.

The entire list, in all its glory, can be found here. (And if you discover errors in the Barnes & Noble Review, kindly alert the editors — not Mr. Silverman!)
