It’s hard not to pick on Scott Johnson over at the Powerline blog when he publishes a post, then later updates it with a new final paragraph like this one:
CORRECTION: Luke Hellier has corrected his MDE post to reflect that the affidavits were removed from the court file by the attorney for Dayton’s wife, not by the attorney for Dayton. That seems to me to make it more likely that the affidavits raised issues personally sensitive to Dayton’s wife rather than to Dayton. I regret the error.
In my opinion, if Scott Johnson truly regretted his error, he could have inserted that paragraph first rather than publish after his misleading post that made the mistake of relying on Luke Hellier as a source. Scott Johnson isn’t demonstrating the behavior of someone who’s interested in accurately informing his readers, since he’s continuing to knowingly mislead his readers rather than present them with accurate information first.
Basically, I think Johnson should hold himself to the same standard he’d surely like to see from other publications.
