There’s not really much you can do when you make a supreme goof like this:
That’s the Press-Gazette of Green Bay, Wisconsin, circulation 43,678.
And yes, that’s a front page that you’ll see time and time again, whenever page-one errors are talked about. This is up there with “Dewey defeats Truman.”
And I’m so broken-hearted that I didn’t get a PDF of the page. Sigh…
UPDATE: Thanks to Chris Thomas, who directed me to a PDF. I’ve replaced the image you’re seeing above.
Anyway, what can the Press-Gazette possibly do to make up for that? Not much, obviously. But they sure tried. Here’s Tuesday’s front page:
See that bit there, on the right, called “About that headline“?
Let’s take a closer look…
Amusing. But again:What else can you do?
Thanks to the multitude of folks who pointed this out to me overnight.
