Oops on the Uh Oh
There is a reason we don’t do much breaking news. For one, the news is broken enough already. But on a more serious note, initial news reports are often inaccurate, even when the news is from trusty sources.
Yesterday, I sent out a missive titled “Uh Oh” to report that a Russian missile had entered Poland, a member of NATO, killing two people, as reported by multiple news outlets. However, it now appears that the missile was Ukrainian and not Russian in origin.
I have unpublished that post and I’m sending this out as a correction. I don’t believe I made an error other than perhaps jumping the gun, but accountability and accuracy are crucial because we want to have your trust.
