Oh, the irony!

This is really just too much:

The Times published an especially embarrassing correction on July 22, fixing seven errors in a single article — an appraisal of Walter Cronkite, the CBS anchorman famed for his meticulous reporting. The newspaper had wrong dates for historic events; gave incorrect information about Cronkite’s work, his colleagues and his program’s ratings; misstated the name of a news agency, and misspelled the name of a satellite.

I've got my own issues with Walter Cronkite and his opining on the Tet Offensive, but he deserves better than that. I mean, supposedly this is "modern journalism's founding father."

Personally, I'd disown the lot of 'em.
