They Grow Up So Fast
Why I remember when Bluto (er uh Al Brown) started posting here. He was just a wee little guy in his little pirate outfit. But now he’s become. The Worst Person in The World.
News Busters:On Friday's "Countdown," MSNBC host Keith Olbermann named NewsBusters the "Worst Persons in the World." Olbermann took issue with a posting by NB contributor Al Brown, who mistakenly said Brian Williams instead of Brian Ross. Brown corrected the post after an NB commentor, SMGalbraith, noticed the error. But it was too late: Olbermann had seized the error and made it the centerpiece of his "Worst Person" segment.Sniff, Sniff, Kind of gets you right here doesn’t it?
A name error tops the list as the "worst"? The "paper of record," the New York Times, runs a daily corrections page and has an average of seven errors per day.
