In a weekend article about singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright and his journey to turning 40-years-old, the New York Times erroneously identified iconic artist Leonard Cohen as “the late Leonard Cohen."
The Huffington Post reports that the Times corrected the error in the web version of the story, but that the mistake still ran in the June 23 print edition of the newspaper.
“An earlier version of this article referred incorrectly to Leonard Cohen,” the Times explained in their correction note. “The well-known singer-songwriter, musician, poet and novelist is very much alive; it is not the case that he is ‘the late Leonard Cohen.’”
Even though a correction was issued, it didn’t stop Twitter from noticing the slip-up.Read More »from New York Times issues correction after mistakenly writing ‘the late Leonard Cohen’
