New York Times Prints Correction 161 Years Later

#1 Post by silverscreenselect » Tue Mar 04, 2014 3:53 pm

Today, the New York Times printed a correction to an 1853 story in which it described the kidnapping and return of Solomon Northup, the man whose story formed the basis of this year's Oscar winning Best Picture, 12 Years a Slave. Someone checked the original article in the Times, and noted that the paper spelled his name "Northrup" in the headline and "Northrop" in the story itself. The New York Times correction was rather brief, in its corrections section along with other corrections of the last couple of days, but other articles about the correction went into more detail.
