The Yale Daily News recently ran this correction, amending a story reporting that Yale Law Dean Harold Koh was being considered for a post at the State Department:
The story "Koh considered for State Department" stated that when reached by phone Wednesday evening and asked to confirm whether he was being considered for position of legal adviser to the Department of State, Yale Law School Dean Harold Hongju Koh repeated, "Is this done?" three times and hung up. In fact, when he answered the phone, Koh said he asked "Is this John?" — referring to Economics professor John Geanakoplos, a close personal friend with whom he had been speaking on the other line — and hung up when he realized it was not Geanakoplos.

The caller said, "Koh?" but the dean thought he said, "No."

Apparently the YDN ran a clarification today in their paper edition, not a correction as online...seems that Koh and the YDN are at loggerheads...

Comment Policy: We reserve the right to edit or delete comments, and in extreme cases to ban commenters, at our discretion. Comments must be relevant and civil (and, especially, free of name-calling). We think of comment threads like dinner parties at our homes. If you make the party unpleasant for us or for others, we'd rather you went elsewhere. We're happy to see a wide range of viewpoints, but we want all of them to be expressed as politely as possible.

We realize that such a comment policy can never be evenly enforced, because we can't possibly monitor every comment equally well. Hundreds of comments are posted every day here, and we don't read them all. Those we read, we read with different degrees of attention, and in different moods. We try to be fair, but we make no promises.

And remember, it's a big Internet. If you think we were mistaken in removing your post (or, in extreme cases, in removing you) -- or if you prefer a more free-for-all approach -- there are surely plenty of ways you can still get your views out.
