ESPN's new transparency in online fixes?

    Is this new practice for ESPN? Reading their college basketball top 25 preview, and I see the phrase "with all four off the the NBA" in the UNC preview. Harmless wrong-word mistake, but ESPN makes a point to insert a parenthetical (Correction: "to") instead of just fixing, where all they're missing is a non-sarcastic writethru font. Has anyone seen this elsewhere?

    That is nice for a fact error but really over the top for a typo. That type of policy quickly can lower staff morale.

    I can't see it because I'm not an insider.

    I can't see it either, and I have Insider. This appears to have been a since-rectified mistake by someone at ESPN.com.

    Can't see it because not an insider, but is it possible that was just a line-editing comment that snuck through into the final version?

    I just meant I couldn't see the story. I only got like three sentences of it.

    Right. I could see the story, but that correction did not exist.
