New York Times Correction: "It's Kentucky, Not West Virginia"
The New York Times had to issue a correction on Thursday after misidentifying the great Commonwealth of Kentucky.
In a story about the discovery of the remains of a sixteenth century fort in North Carolina, the Times included a map to note the location of Morganton, North Carolina where the fort was found by archaeologists.
The map highlights the states that border North Carolina and included a piece of Kentucky in the far northwest, west of Virginia.
In the original article, Kentucky was identified as being West Virginia.
The Times' correction reads:
A map with an article on Tuesday about the discovery of a 16th-century fort last month near Morganton, N.C., labeled incorrectly a state that borders Virginia to the west. It is Kentucky, not West Virginia.
Of course everything south of New York City is Texas, though, right?
