Every year, Regret the Error
publishes a list of the top corrections, errors and retractions from the English-speaking press.
I thought you might enjoy the award for Best Science Reporting
, which went to the UK-based Daily Telegraph for the following correction:
Owing to an editing error, our report “Women who dress provocatively more likely to be raped, claim scientists” (June 23) wrongly stated that research presented at the recent BPS conference by Sophia Shaw found that women who drink alcohol are more likely to be raped. In fact, the research found the opposite. We apologise for our error.
