Best Correction (Blogging Division)

Note: this has a sexual theme: we don't accept complaints when we warn about that and you continue on and get offended.

We've published some classic newspaper corrections in the past, but bloggers sometimes make mistakes too.

Amanda Hess, who blogs at TBD about Sex and gender at work, in bed, and on the street, recently had to post a correction.

No, she really needed to post the correction!

"This blog post originally stated that one in three black men who have sex with me is HIV positive," says a correction now added to the top of her October 8, 2010 entry.

"In fact," the correction continues, "the statistic applies to black men who have sex with men."
