An earlier version of this post contained

October 28, 2013 - Chris Tomassucci

It's always fun to check out the corrections that appear from time to time on the bottom of stories posted online by news sites and others.

Here is the best one I've seen in a while:

From the Wall Street Journal in regards to a piece they published by Suzanne Somers: (yes that Suzanne Somers.*)

An earlier version of this post contained a quotation attributed to Lenin (“Socialized medicine is the keystone to the arch of the socialist state”) that has been widely disputed. And it included a quotation attributed to Churchill (“Control your citizens’ health care and you control your citizens“) that the Journal has been unable to confirm.

Also, the cover of a Maclean’s magazine issue in 2008 showed a picture of a dog on an examining table with the headline “Your Dog Can Get Better Health Care Than You.” An earlier version of this post incorrectly said the photo showed and headline referred to a horse

If there are enough good ones this could be a regular feature. I'll call it: "An earlier version of this post contained."
