Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
Here is the opening sentence of a story in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel Wednesday. (The paper is owned by and the story is sourced from USA Today, but still…)
Bucks forward Kyle Korver discussed the backstory and emotional locker room prior to his team’s decision to boycott a playoff game in the aftermath of the Jacob Blake shooting in Milwaukee in late August. [emphasis added]
You’d think at least one editor at the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel would have noticed a problem with that lead sentence.
Hint: Milwaukee and Kenosha are at least 40 miles apart. They’re not even in adjoining counties.
Update: They apparently don’t read their own stories, but they do read the comments on the stories. About two hours after I left a comment, they now have a correction in place at the top of the story:
Correction/clarification: An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported the city where Jacob Blake was shot. He was shot by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
