Very timely discussion, Dave! This morning I received my customized headlines from the Washington Post, and this link leads to exactly what my first headline stated: Editor’s Note: This post was inadvertently published. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/federal-eye/wp/2013/04/10/editorsnote/
How embarrassing for a world-class news publication to self-promote an inaccurate posting on their website — which immediately drew all eyes to view the error.
Federal agency erroneous postings can result in impacts far greater than mere loss of face.
thanks for initiating this discussion!
