Among the seven LA Times oopsies shared December 24th were the eradication of a non-existent Mickey Ward boxing match loss (in connection with a piece on The Fighter), the re-construction of Tron director Steven Lisberger‘s (pictured) decimated directing resume and the sorting out of some CBS-PBS consonant confusion.
