Was it worth it? After putting their former media writer Howard Kurtz back in its paper via an op-ed on the U.S. media, WaPo had to swallow a correction on Kurtz’s piece. Kurtz is now Washington Bureau Chief of The Daily Beast.

Correction: In 2008, ABC paid Casey Anthony $200,000 for photos and video of her missing 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, but did not obtain, as the original text of this op-ed reported, an exclusive interview.
The text below has been corrected.
