Best mistakes of the year

January 5th, 2008

Collection of the best mistakes and corrections of the year.

From the article:

On December 22, 2006, The Australian published an article on page 28 titled, “Coffa backs measures to restore order”. In it, The Australian incorrectly stated that Ms Van Tienen had been found guilty by the Australian Sport Anti-Doping Authority of trafficking drugs and banned from participating in weightlifting for two years. Ms Van Tienen has never been charged or convicted of drug offences, has never been banned from the sport, nor has she ever been involved in an organised drug ring.
