LA Times Airbrushes Error without a Correction

Patterico caught the L.A. Times with their hands in the proverbial cookie jar. He is showing evidence of an LA Times Airbrushing of it's web version of an article correcting a substantive error without issuing a correction so far. Read the post and see the scan of the print edition with the original error.
The recently issued L.A. Times ethics code states: “When we make mistakes, we quickly and forthrightly correct the record.” (My emphasis.) Yet the paper has just surreptitiously fixed a substantive error in the Web version of an article — without acknowledging the error that ran in the print version.
