Oops

Correction o' the day: making it up edition

book-of-mormon-pic.jpgCatching up to this unusual Los Angeles Times correction from last week — a reader pointed it out to me today. Um, don't say someone declined to comment unless they actually did.

FOR THE RECORD:

"The Book of Mormon": An Aug. 26 article about the musical "The Book of Mormon" said that the show's producers declined to comment for the story. In fact, they were never informed of the article nor asked to comment for it.

Here's the original story, by New York theater writer Patrick Pacheco.
