Mistakes happen, especially in the media. Everyday, thousands of bonehead mistakes are printed in newspapers and magazines and go out over the airwaves, and only a tiny fraction of the errors are ever corrected. Regret the Error is the media consumer's revenge, a regularly updated compendium of media mistakes big and small. The big mistakes get plenty of coverage elsewhere the plagiarized newspaper columns, the fabricated news sources, the memoirs that are how shall we put this totally made up. Regret the Error covers the big whoppers, but it really shines on highlighting the small stuff that the media gets wrong. Small, that is, unless you're the person being written about. There's a useful yearly roundup of errors, corrections, and plagiarisms, and some of that material has been compiled into a book. Read 'em and weep.
Sample Regret the Error Post: A picture last Sunday with an essay about a crack house in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, was published in error. The three houses in the picture are on the same street as the crack house, but none of the three figured in the essay.
