From our There But for the Grace of God desk
Like Halley’s Comet, a correction in in the Boston Herald is something to both marvel at and celebrate.
So it is with the note that appears at the top of page 2 in today’s Herald.
That would be this page 12 yesterday, which reported the murder of Brockton four-year-old Chauncey Cohen.
And specifically this caption, which calls the victim’s father by the alleged killer’s name.
The hardreading staff has nothing but sympathy for the Heraldniks here, since this kind of error is the monster under every journalist’s bed. Good for the Herald for not burying its mistake, but correcting it with the prominence it deserves.
