A GOOD SIGN, IF FAR TOO LATE

Washington Post Baghdad bureau chief Rajiv Chandrasekaran emails bloggers about his article correcting his omission of Paul Bremer’s farewell speech.

As one of the bloggers contacted by Chandrasekaran writes, “Now let’s see if the media will apply this lesson going forward, and start reading blogs before they make [more]embarrassing high-profile mistakes like this.”

I don’t know if Chandrasekaran has publicly responded to U.S. Marine Eric Johnson’s takedown of him in The New York Post, but I’ve got to think it played a role in his being willing to listen to bloggers.
