I will be editing the Monday edition of the USA Today sports section and will be researching the USA Today corrections policy.

The corrections policy for The State Journal essentially states they are committed to correcting any errors they have made and then refers the reader to the name, number and email of the publication's managing editor, Ann Ali. Most other correction policies seem to be more involved, stating the specifics of how the policy is handled, including where the corrections may be found and even how expedient they are in posting said correction. Obviously, a corrections policy says that the publication has integrity and cares about publishing news that is accurate and factual. A publication that has no corrections policy speaks loudly - it says that the editorial staff couldn't care less about accuracy or truth. That's why you will never see a corrections policy for a tabloid.

I analyzed The New York Time's corrections policy.

It states: "The Times welcomes comments and suggestions, or complaints about errors that warrant correction. Messages on news coverage can be e-mailed to nytnews@nytimes.com or left toll-free at 1-888-NYT-NEWS (1-888-698-6397). Comments on editorials may be e-mailed to letters@nytimes.com or faxed to (212) 556-3622.
Readers dissatisfied with a response or concerned about the paper’s journalistic integrity may reach the public editor at public@nytimes.com or (212) 556-7652.
For newspaper delivery questions: 1-800-NYTIMES (1-800-698-4637) or e-mail customercare@nytimes.com."

If someone would like to contact The New York Times about comments and suggestions or complaints about errors, they must email nytnews@nytimes.com or call with their corrections. Editorial comments must be emailed to letters@nytimes.com or faxed. Reads concerned with the "paper's journalistic integrity" or who are "dissatisfied with a response" must email the public editor at public@nytimes.com or call.

The corrections page is located on page A2. Here is the link to the corrections page: http://www.nytimes.com/pages/corrections/index.html?action=click&pgtype=Homepage&region=SiteIndex&module=SiteIndex&contentCollection=Corrections&WT.nav=footer-nav

There is a Q&A about the corrections policy between the managing editor of The Tribune, Tad Weber and Senior Editor of The Times, Bill Borders. On the same page there is a Corrections Stylebook Entry that lists how and what each correction should cover.
Here is the link: http://publiceditor.blogs.nytimes.com/2006/05/10/qa-on-the-timess-correction-policy/?_php=true&_type=blogs&module=Search&mabReward=relbias%3Ar%2C{%222%22%3A%22RI%3A18%22}&_r=0

"The Times recognizes an ethical responsibility to correct all its factual errors, large and small (even misspellings of names), promptly and in a prominent reserved space in the paper."
-Margaret Sullivan, Public Editor's Journal, The New York Times.

I will be editing the Wednesday edition of The Parthenon. Also, I will be looking up the correction policy for The Parthenon.

Krista Shifflett said...

The USA Today corrections policy states "USA Today is committed to accuracy." The policy is listed online and on the printed editions. Contact information for the editor is listed as well. This corrections policy ties in with what they state under their editorial policy online; their main goal is to tell the truth as accurately as possible using specific guidelines. Anything that needs to be corrected or any suggestions they will take to be as accurate as possible.
