Re: It's in print, so it must be true...

Even if you write it down, a journalist or editor can
either misunderstand or overlook. I had one send me
a copy of the article, which I corrected and returned.
We then had a lengthy phone conversation during which I
dictated some quotes. I had also sent a fair amount of
material to begin with (say 50 pages worth).

Even after all this effort, when the article appeared,
it was only 50% accurate. I guess journalism is like
baseball: batting .500 is excellent.
