WashPost Crime Reporter Should Consider a Job Change

“A Sept. 21 item in the Metro in Brief column about a woman fatally shot in Prince George’s County and a child who was wounded incorrectly reported the woman’s age, the child’s sex, the child’s location at the time of the shooting, and the street on which the shooting occurred. A correct account of the incident appears in today’s Metro in Brief column.” —WashPost Crime Reporter Should Consider a Job Change (WashPost)

I’ve made mistakes, too — but this is pretty bad. One expects more from the Washington Post.
