PostWatch: An irregular correction to the Washington Post

The Post runs a correction on the Al Sharpton "white trash" quote I
cited
from his appearance on Meet the Press, and the Post's account of it.
Here's the correction:

The Jan. 13 Politics column quoted Democratic presidential candidate Al
Sharpton on the subject of his past as saying "I think you got white trash with
worse backgrounds." The quote was taken from a transcript of NBC's "Meet the
Press" done by eMediaMillWorks and distributed by the Associated Press. NBC's
transcript of the show quoted Sharpton as saying, "I think you've got white
candidates with worse backgrounds." A review of a recording of the program was
inconclusive. Sharpton spokeswoman Rachel Noerdlinger said she did not know
what word Sharpton used but "he definitely didn't use the words 'white
trash.'"


Dueling transcripts.

As I said at the time, I didn't see this part of the show. However, one wonders
how hard it can be to tell the difference between "white trash" and "white
candidates," even with the sound turned off.


Note: You may see this item blogged twice--I got tired of waiting for the email blogging to kick in. I'll delete it later if that happens, or you can read it twice.
