Alberta gov’t sets up site to correct media errors

Immediately dubbed by suspicious media as The Ministry of Truth, Alberta’s new On the Record site claims only to correct errors of fact that appear in media, especially foreign media. It’s actually quite a good idea if in fact it lives up to this claim. Scroll down the Webroll and you’ll find Regret the Error, a site dedicated to the phenomenon of media error, which argues quite eloquently that mistakes happen, and should be corrected without fault or blame, especially using the new media as a source of media correction.
