“Take That Back IMMEDIATELY!”

The bothersome stuff you have to correct when you’re a major news organization.

Morning corrections: Irish president not gay, Kentucky exists

• Kentucky also lies to the west of Virginia: “A map with an article on Tuesday about the discovery of a 16th-century fort last month near Morganton, N.C., labeled incorrectly a state that borders Virginia to the west,” a correction in The New York Times Thursday reads.

It is Kentucky, not West Virginia.

“Professionals” much?
