NYT makes stuff up again

Okay, it’s not quite Jayson or Judith, but a reader pointed out this sentence in an article in yesterday’s NYT about housing prices in Watts:

Ms. Arnold said places like Marina County, Bakersfield, Ontario and Riverside, all an hour or two from the city, are luring people away with houses twice the size for half the money.

We think that Marina County is really Ventura County. And we’ll chalk this up to a bad cell phone connection. But still, would it kill the NYT to buy a map? (Think piece idea- Bad Cell Phone Connections: The New Scourge of Journalistic Accuracy.) (UPDATE: Looks like ‘Marina County’ is ‘Moreno Valley.’)
