Seems the NY Time's still has a credibility problem.
A bottom-line question: Does a corrections policy not enforced damage The Times's credibility more than having no policy at all?
And to think, this is published by the Public Editor on the eve of NY Times Online essentially shutting down in favor of the ridiculous and overpriced TimesSelect Service. As a user of NY Times online since the very first day it came out (back in late 1995, for those interested), I can say with certainty that I would never pay for their schlock op-eds.
Bye Bye Gray Lady
