Poynter chimes in on recent sports correction in the Flint Journal

An anonymous commenter asked me if I thought would aggregate a link to this Poynter story about a recent Flint Journal article. I don't think so, I said.

I do know this, I am well acquainted with Gary Oyster, head of the Flint Metro League, and although I have not spoken to him, I'll bet he had a busy day when the initial story was published.

Another Booth property is sold

The Kalamazoo building has been purchased by a downtown development group.

My favorite paragraph from the story:

"Taylor would not say how much he and business partner Alan Sylvester will pay to buy and redevelop the Kalamazoo Gazette property. The acquisition and redevelopment includes the former Business Review West Michigan building just south of the newspaper building on Burdick Street, which is also owned by the Gazette."

Well, here's an idea, work your sources inside the newspaper because somebody at Booth or the Gazette must know what they are receiving for the property? The sale amount is pretty important info for a business story, is it not?
