We got some coverage from Mallary Tenore at Poynter.org, who talked with journalism experts on errors and corrections like Scott Maier and Craig Silverman (a project adviser); Megan Garber at Nieman Lab, whose piece walked through the tale of our first corrected bug; and Tracey Taylor at Berkeleyside. We’re grateful for the attention.
MediaBugs is on Twitter as @media_bugs if you want to follow us there.
You’ll also find, at the bottom of this and every post on this blog, a link that says “Report an error.” This is a demo of how MediaBugs works as an embedded service. Ideally, you shouldn’t have to go to another site to report an error on a page you’re already reading, right? You should be able to report the error in situ — in place. We’ll be offering this to media partners and anyone who has a website that covers Bay Area news. The code is pretty simple. Give it a spin!
