Newsweek slow, LGF probably slower

I wonder when Charles is going to correct his post?

Like The Washington Post, Newsweek incorrectly reported in its September 12 issue that Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Babineaux Blanco was slow to declare a state of emergency in the state, purportedly delaying federal assistance in dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. In fact, Blanco declared a state of emergency on August 26, before Katrina made landfall. But while the Post has corrected its false reporting, Newsweek has not yet done so -- despite the fact that the magazine has already corrected another error in the same article.
