The hardworking staff has chronicled in detail (as recently as yesterday) its reservations about New York Times exiting editor Bill Keller’s column for the paper.
Now comes this correction regarding his latest:
Because of an editing error, an essay on Page 11 this weekend, about the religious beliefs of Republican presidential candidates, misstates the proportion of Americans who believe that extraterrestrials live among us. It is about a third, not a majority. The essay also erroneously includes Rick Santorum among politicians affiliated with evangelical Christianity. Mr. Santorum is Catholic.
An editing error, eh? Anyone else hear the sound of one arm twisting?
