A Week After TARP Error, Post Prints Letter Noting Mistake -- But Doesn't Correct Error

Six days after falsely writing that TARP came under President Obama ("WashPost Includes Bank Bailout in List of Obama Administration Action"), the Washington Post printed a letter, on Saturday, pointing out the error.

The letter, by Andrea Banyas, is pretty simple and straightforward.

The Post, however, has still not corrected the error. The Post's policy on corrections is for errors to, you know, be corrected; there's no clause saying that printing a letter pointing out the error suffices.
