Our latest batch
Last week, in Diana Welch's story about AWOL soldier Mark Wilkerson, Stars and Stripes is misidentified as a "military magazine." As the Mideast bureau chief of the paper informed us, "Stars and Stripes is a daily, editorially independent newspaper, not a magazine." Also, in last week's election coverage, one item is headlined "Teachers Push Cohen, Cops Back Wong." Actually, as the name of the organization supporting Ellen Cohen implies, the Texas Parent PAC is not a teachers' organization, but is better described as a "pro-public-education" group. Lastly, a Sept. 1 "Naked City" news item citing new data from the U.S. Census Bureau incorrectly states that Travis County's poverty rate was about 26% in 2005. It was actually 15.7%. The Chronicle regrets the errors.
