*The above posting ran in the West Virginian newspaper The Dominion Post on Saturday, seeking a suspect described only as a “black man” and having done something “suspicious.”
According to Mediate, the online version of the post was soon updated with a description of the actual crime he was connected with (stolen credit cards), three photos of the man in question, and an explanation as to why they printed the original article:
Due to a copy editor’s error, an item was published in The Dominion Post on Saturday without a full description of a suspect sought by the Monongalia County Sheriff’s Department in connection with stolen credit cards. The corrected item with the full description ran in the Sunday edition of The Dominion Post and was published on TheDPost.com late Saturday with three photographs.
