The Weirdest New York Times Correction Ever


(Video Link)

This might just be one of the strangest scenes in The Shining, but The New York Times Correction on the matter might just be even weirder. Here goes:
Correction: January 29, 2012
An earlier version of this article incorrectly described imagery from "The Shining." The gentleman seen with the weird guy in the bear suit is wearing a tuxedo, but not a top hat.

It's darn good they changed that. I mean how would the readers possibly lived without knowing the bear was not, in fact, wearing a top hat?

” The gentleman seen with the weird guy in the bear suit is wearing a tuxedo, but not a top hat."

"It’s darn good they changed that. I mean how would the readers possibly lived without knowing the bear was not, in fact, wearing a top hat?"

the correction states that the guy WITH the bear is not wearing a top hat, not that THE BEAR is wearing one

that is all :)

I guess it's like the My Little Pony correction last year where they said the policy is to correct anything that's wrong, no matter how insignificant or strange it may seem.

After the My Little Pony and all the press they received for the correction I'm sure they're quite happy if they get to make a few more.
