Subject: The Time of Shedding and Cold Rocks
Probably the best correction ever from the New York Times a couple of days ago. I would have enjoyed
being in the office when the parties involved were explaining to the editor what happened.
Correction: March 6, 2018
Because of an editing error involving a satirical text-swapping web browser extension, an earlier
version of this article misquoted a passage from an article by the Times reporter Jim Tankersley.
The sentence referred to America’s narrowing trade deficit during “the Great Recession,” not
during “the Time of Shedding and Cold Rocks.” (Pro tip: Disable your “Millennials to Snake
People” extension when copying and pasting.)
