Washington Post ombudsman Patrick B. Pexton admits his errors in a previous blog post:

Caw, caw, caw, crunch! That’s the sound of me eating crow. It’s not the most pleasant repast I’ve had — the feathers don’t go down so easy — but it is a necessary one.

I did a blog post this past Friday that was dismissive, snarky and wrongheaded, and had factual errors too. And I apologize to readers for it and I’ll try to repair some of the damage here.

Thanks to @CJR for the tip.

    Is he going to apologize for writing that he “did a blog post?” SNARK.
