Martijn Kleppe has compiled a good and broad-ranging list of writing and reactions about the images surrounding the death of Osama bin Laden. Included in the list is everything from satirically repurposed videos (above) to reasoned argumentation about whether or not the photos of bin Laden’s corpse should be revealed to the public. I love reading these debates when the issue is so close to heart, but I also take a page from Jon Stewart in thinking that I’m going to love reading a book about all this in about 10 years.
Regret the Error has coverage of many high-profile spelling errors made while reporting news of Osama bin Laden’s death. CNN, FoxNews, NPR, and many others have made the mistake. One Fox affiliate that made the error has written about other publications and stations making similar mistakes and considers how such mistakes might make it to air at news stations.
