The best media corrections of 2006

As you may imagine, since pretty much everything is available on the internet somewhere, there is a site the specializes in tracking media retractions and corrections. Most of the time, these are pretty dull, but sometimes the retraction itself is inherently funny, either due to what's being retracted or because the retractee just isn't that sorry. Not all of the entries in the linked to story are of this nature though but I'm not going to dwell on the more serious ones.

One that caught my attention was a fine bit of British-style cooking via the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

A recipe in the Entrée section Sunday for Mr. C’s Bread Pudding misstated the length of time for baking the pudding. The recipe calls for baking it for 40 minutes, not 540 minutes.

The funniest one though isn't actually from this year's list. It's from the 2005 one:

Norma Adams-Wade's June 15 column incorrectly called Mary Ann Thompson-Frenk a socialist. She is a socialite.

Oh, the mortification!

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
