Journalese of the day: Corrections

File under Corrections of the Day, from always alert pal Joe G: “The New York Times noted today (July 26, 2016) that a review of a movie got the name wrong. ‘The Childhood of the Leader,’ NOT ‘The Childhood of Shadows.’ Then: ‘The review also misstated the given name of a former president of the United States. He was Woodrow Wilson, not Woodward.’ Oh, well, give the reviewer an F for effort.”
