Fox News pundit Monica Crowley “incorrectly labeled the Bullsh**ter of the Day” – Salon publishes my corrections request re: snarky takedown column

Via Salon’s “Bullsh**ter of the Day column yesterday, staff writer Mireia Triguero Roura took aim at Fox News pundit Monica Crowley.

The target of Roura’s ire was an October 5 tweet in which Crowley, pictured standing next to a segment of the Berlin Wall, joked: “At the Berlin Wall last week. Walls work”.

Salon’s article as it appeared on October 5, 2016

Hawk-eyed readers will notice from the above screenshot that Crowley’s tweet is dated October 5, 2015 – not 2016, as Roura stated in her article.

Today, shortly after making a corrections request pointing out the mistake, I received the following reply from Benjamin Wheelock, Salon’s senior art director.

Thank you for bringing this error to our attention, it has been corrected.

Here’s what the article looks like now (includes a misspelling of Crowley’s name):
