Times Corrects Stanley’s Gibson ‘Swipe’ — One Of Them, At Least

williams_gibson.jpgFollowing yesterday’s Alessandra Stanley column on Brian Williams‘ Iraq anchoring and subsequent note from an ABC News SVP calling the column “gratuitous and unfounded” in its depection of Charles Gibson, you knew this was coming:

The TV Watch column yesterday about reports from Iraq by the NBC anchor Brian Williams, and the competition among NBC, ABC and CBS to draw viewers to their evening news programs, referred incorrectly to coverage of President Bush’s State of the Union address in January by Charles Gibson, the ABC anchor. He covered it from Washington, not “from his desk in New York.”

There were plenty of other corrections the Times could’ve made, according to ABC.
