This is indeed a tragedy.

But how dreadfully worse it is that news kiosks in America continue to display USA Today with its banner headline celebrating 12 Survivors.


Edward, if that's the only newspaper who went to press with information that quickly turned out to be wrong, I'd be surprised.

Easy to correct online editions, but not the hard copy.

Dennis Howlett

There are some truly insightful comments by a person involved in the tragedy at Live Fire Ministries: http://www.livefire.us/articles/4-january-2006

The analysis is very clear and thoughtful.

Renee Hopkins Callahan

It was indeed not only one paper, but about 2/3 of the U.S. dailies that got the story wrong on Wednesday morning -- so many partly because the Associated Press, which is the source of national news for many papers, had it wrong. There's been a lot of discussion about how American newspaper failed this story. The chief culprits are failure to understand that if the only source available is not definitive, the story and the headline -- especially the headline -- needs to reflect that. If AP had said, "families told miners found alive" instead of "miners found alive," they would have a better argument that they did the best they could with the info that was available at the time. A great story on this from Editor & Publisher is here: http://www.editorandpublisher.com/eandp/news/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1001806511
