The Times critic-from-the-right takes credit for a correction the paper published today about its editorial last weekend on SpongeBob and the Focus on the the Family activist who is in a dither about tolerance of homosexuals. The "For the Record":
SpongeBob — An editorial Saturday about children's literature and cartoons erroneously stated that James Dobson of Focus on the Family declared that SpongeBob SquarePants is a homosexual sponge. Instead, in a speech last month, Dobson criticized as pro-homosexual a tolerance video featuring SpongeBob, Big Bird and others.
"This was no trivial error," writes Patterico, who likes to keep watch on anything that smacks of anti-conservative sentiment in the paper. He had been complaining about the Dobson editorial online and wrote to the Times about it.
