    I think that Times Ombudsman Arthur Brisbane is right in regards to the Times being as specific as they can. When a consumer reads or watches the news, they inform others of what they read and what they know about the situation and when false facts are written or reported, they go down the grape-vine and get lost in translation, This is all due to the mishap that the writer wrote in the article. Get your facts right. I do give the Times credit for comign out and clearing it up, but just do it right the first time because false information can cause a lot of damage.
