`Corrections’ deserve more prominent placement in paper

Dear Editor,

Ever notice how a printed front page story – whether in large or small city newspapers, never ever gives prominence to any correction that a front page error needs. That leads to the reader who may scan the front page story’s error and remember it – while on the way to the day’s sport section or the horoscope or the crossword puzzle.

After that, try to find the error correction. The NY Times even has a category for “Corrections.” A correction is usually very brief. The NYC readers of “Corrections” are probably the only ones involved with the subject.

After many years of living in and also visiting many areas, I have never been able to figure out why corrections cannot appear with the same prominence that the front page inaccurate story had in the first place.

Especially if there is an important local issue involved.
