Page Six mistakes parody Twitter account for real New York Times ombud

In a short post about Anderson Cooper coming out, the New York Post confused a fake Twitter account for a real one, writing: "New York Times public editor Arthur Brisbane, in a jab at last week’s CNN Obamacare-vote error, chimed in: 'CNN is reporting that Anderson Cooper is straight.' But that tweet was not from Arthur Brisbane, whose Twitter account is @thepubliceditor; that tweet was from a parody account, @timespublicedit. Tuesday afternoon, the Post updated its story to remove that sentence. Jeff Sonderman wrote Monday about tweets responding to Cooper's announcement.
