Apology of the Week

“Today, a Financial Post reporter responded unprofessionally to another Twitter user on his personal Twitter account.

“While the remarks were made on the reporter’s personal Twitter account, the conversation first began when the reporter was acting in his capacity as a reporter for the Financial Post.

“We hold — and will continue to hold — all our reporters to a higher standard in how they address anyone, in any forum.

“We apologize for the reporter’s conduct.” – National Post (Canada)

Parting Shot

“Because of an editing error, an article on Jan. 25 about the forthcoming film adaptation of “Sherlock Holmes” misidentified the character that Susan Downey, a producer on the film and the wife of its star, Robert Downey Jr., described as “a bit of a ladies man, a bit of a brawler” and as having “a gambling problem.” Ms. Downey was referring to Dr. John Watson, not Sherlock Holmes.” – The New York Times
