The Culprit: The Copy Editor

There are few things more maddening in a newsroom than to have your copy changed — and changed incorrectly.

So it was with The Washington Post, who, according to Post Ombudsman Andrew Alexander, reports that it was not the reporter, Akeya Dickson’s, fault for the mistake in a story that a Public Enemy song made a joke of 9/11. In actuality the song is referring to 911, the emergency number, as changed by a copy editor.

See Alexander’s story.
