Somebody stole your tumblr’s New York Times this morning! Isn’t that punishable by death here in New York City?
An article about Ivana Trump and her spending habits misstated the number of bras she buys. It is two dozen black, two dozen beige and two dozen white, not two thousand of each.
Josh Dzieza rounds up the best New York Times corrections of all time—including, yes, Twilight Sparkle.
Audience member at Columbia Journalism School to Arthur Sulzberger, New York Times publisher: “How will low-income residents now access The Times at home?”

I think the media story of the year, in 2010, was the New York Times’ discovery of Brooklyn. Once a day there’s a story about all the riches offered in that borough. There are young men and women wearing ironic glass frames on the streets. There are open air markets, like trading posts in the early Chippewa tribe, where you can make beads at home and then trade them for someone to come over and start a small fire in your apartment that you share with nine others. Artisanal cheeses. For sale, on the streets of an entire American borough. It’s been fascinating to watch the paper venture over the bridge. Venture through the tunnel. Go out to the outer reaches. The outer boroughs of the city. All different sections of the paper. They are making grilled cheese sandwiches in the streets… Yes, it’s just fantastic, it’s like Marrakesh over there… I’m leaving here to get to an artisanal market that just opened up today. It’s a flash artisanal market. The newest thing.
