Oceania Has Always Been Off The Record With Eastasia

Great moments in newspaper corrections, courtesy of New Hampshire’s Nashua Telegraph:

A story on Page 1 of Tuesday’s Telegraph quoted a White House official explaining that a Q-and-A session with dozens of teenagers in Nashua High School North on Monday was “off the record.” However, the explanation about the talk being “off the record” was, it turns out, also “off the record” and should not have been quoted.

Found via Diana Hsieh, who dubs it “Best newspaper correction ever, and adds, “Sometimes I feel like we’re living in a Kafka novel.”
