Scott R. Maier | University of Oregon School of Journalism
Research shows that nine of ten errors are never reported -- and therefore never corrected. MediaBugs help change the odds in favor of accuracy.

News outlets that correct errors should do as The New York Times does: acknowledge in the correction what the error was, instead of merely stating the correction. That gives context to people who read the original story and those who did not, and it makes the news outlet take responsibility for the error. That helps build public trust. I served 14 years as Executive Director of the independent, nonprofit Minnesota News Council; its mission is to help the public hold news outlets accountable for accuracy, fairness and ethical standards, and to help news outlets avoid lapses that undermine public trust.

Great idea - simple implementation. You would have to not value accuracy (or to have something else to gain from not correcting a mistake) to oppose this.

Great idea!

We use the MediaBug widget so folks can report errors on our site. Every site should be open to corrections.

Steve Garfield | Off On A Tangent

Good idea - buttons would work much better than the system we have at the moment (asking people to email us if they spot an error/have a comment to make.)

Soy docente y periodista. Me parece interesante esta opción aunque en medios casi monopólicos inaplicable.

I've been thinking this same thing recently, and wholeheartedly agree. Every web site should have this, whatever the kind of content.

As a journalist of 33 years who now serves as Vice President of the Institute of the Americas in La Jolla, Ca., I believe the media has an obligation to report and correct errors. By doing so, we enhance our credibility with our audiences.

Clay Duda |
This is a great idea.

Terri Thornton |
This is a great idea which is long overdue. If only there were a way to also flag errors that occur on-air!

John Tantalo | Emend
A few years ago a I started a service called Emend, much like MediaBugs. Emend is targeted at fixing grammatical and spelling mistakes. Our only requirement is that the user submit a proposed correction for every mistake. I have a browser bookmarklet for users and a Javascript widget for publishers.

I'm interested in joining because we seem to have very similar goals and I'd like a chance to get a wider audience for Emend.

Please take a look at the site ( and let me know how I can help.

Jon Fox |
Awesome idea! keep up the good work, This concept should carry forth far and wide...

Nicole Zanetti |
I do not have a web site at the moment, but as a Software Quality Assurance professional I am very intrigued by the idea of this alliance. I joined so I could be a part of it, and I look forward to seeing if it can gain enough traction to actually improve quality on the internet.

For most websites, errors are inevitable. Publishers and content providers should make it their business to ensure that readers have an easy way to point out mistakes when and where they occur.
