The images below pretty much tell the story. If you're going to claim breaking news as your bread and butter, you open yourself to extra scrutiny.
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer was on top of an aviation emergency, but a hastily written story was posted with equal haste, apparently without editing.
For the non-copy-editors among you, there are three problems: a missed capitalization in the headline ("Sea-tac" instead of Sea-Tac), and, in the "lede graf," incorrect use of the plural form of smoke and citation of the wrong day.
Within moments, an unforgiving reader spotted it. Two of these three errors were corrected about 15 minutes after the original post.
In the age of print, this sort of on-deadline flub would be a big, embarrassing deal. Online-only, I don't know — not so much? What do you think? Does anyone care anymore?
