Traditionally when newspapers make errors, they disclose for them, apologise and move on.
The Age online has no such policy, it seems, even when it comes to significant and demonstrable errors of fact.
They cover up their errors as quickly as possible, hoping no-one remembers or has recorded their errors in screen-grab form.
An example of this deceitful phenomenon occurred last night when the Age falsely reported that a police officer was shot near Essendon station. In fact, a police officer shot an armed bus hijacker.
VEXNEWS understands from media sources that The Age online only correctly their false story after noticing a more accurate and complete account on the Herald Sun’s website.
