John McIntyre, longtime copy editor and current night content production manager for the Baltimore Sun, dove into the paper’s archives for a story that shares some of the Sun’s notable mishaps and corrections.
It is, of course, delightful.
Here are two of my favorite items from the piece, which you should go read now:
An Evening Sun food page article on home canning and preserving produced a legendary headline, “You Can Put Pickles Up Yourself.” There’s no writing a correction for that.
When my archives are back online after being transferred to Poynter.org, I promise to do a post of my favorite Sun corrections since 2004.
