You may or not know that the Daily Mail has recently started a “Corrections and Clarifications” column.
As Dave points out:
It’s a pretty half-arsed affair for many reasons. The only way to find it is by searching for it by title. There’s no link for it anywhere on the site and it doesn’t seem to have been given its own section. Most bizarrely, the corrections don’t appear in the main web feed for the paper.
None of the corrections link back to the original story and in many cases you only get a vague description to help you work out which story they are talking about. And even if you work out which story they’re talking about, it’s often impossible to find the story on the web site as it has been removed.
Any suggestions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or sent via post.
