Get it right, folks

This correction, five days after the NYT’s big story on Barack Obama’s senate record.  Not quite the gotcha they’d hope for in light of the facts.

A front-page article on Sunday about the Senate record of Barack Obama referred incorrectly in some copies to his position on a drawdown of troops from Iraq. After joining the Senate in 2005 Mr. Obama spoke in favor of a drawdown, including in a speech on Nov. 22 of that year. He did not propose a drawdown “only after he was running for president and polls showed voters favoring it.” (What he did do after becoming a candidate was to propose legislation calling for a drawdown.)
