WaPo Alert Misidentifies Pelosi as Speaker

No, its not the worst journalistic crime out there. And no, it’s not even that bad of a mistake. Especially since WaPo got it together and caught it two hours after it happened.

A WaPo news alert called House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) “House Speaker” and later offered their correction.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced, via her Twitter feed, the final three members of the ‘supercommittee” charged with recommending an additional $1.2 trillion cuts to the deficit.”

Correction Subject Line: Politics News Alert: Nancy Pelosi announces her picks for deficit ‘supercommittee’ (corrected)

Roll Call‘s Daniel Newhauser questioned whether WaPo intended anything more with it than meets the eye:  “Whoops .. @Wapo alert identifies @NancyPelosi as House Speaker. A lil nostalgia for the Dems?”
