Wasn't Jayson Blair fired years ago?

Eye-opener of a correction in today's New York Times, invariably my favorite part of the paper --

"An article on Page 50 of The Times Magazine this weekend, about Sam Nunn, head of the Nuclear Threat Initiative and former chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, misstates the name of a company on whose board he serves. It is Chevron, not Chevron Texaco. The article also misspells the surname of a former secretary of state with whom Nunn and others wrote a recent op-ed for The Wall Street Journal. He is George P. Shultz, not Schulz. And the article misspells the surname of the director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency in several references. He is Mohamed ElBaradei, not ElBaredei."

Names aren't misspelled when they are made up
