Retraction & apology

Friday, May 11, 2007 by Dave Winer.

A couple of days ago, in documenting a misquote in a Business Week article, I theorized that the misquote was a result of "empty throwaway words that fill up all Business Week articles." Permalink to this paragraph

While the theory accurately reflects my state of mind, which is all it purported to do, it's unfair to say all Business Week articles contain this kind of misquote, or even most. I should have said that some Business Week articles do. Permalink to this paragraph

I apologize for this mistake. I believe they care about the quality of their publication, it was unfair to imply that they don't.  Permalink to this paragraph
