Other Than That, the Story Was Accurate

The following is an excerpt from OpinionJournal’s “Best of the Web” at The Wall Street Journal written by the editor, James Taranto.

Other Than That, the Story Was Accurate
“An earlier version of this article misspelled in one instance the name of a village in India where the family of Sri Srinivasan once lived. The village is Mela Thiruvenkatanathapuram, not Mela Thiruvenkanathapuram.”—New York Times, March 15

Man Mansplains to Man
“If there’s one thing I know as a man, it’s that women love it when men publicly police women’s tone and tell them to smile,” mansplains Huffington Post bro Nick Wing:

A number of male pundits put this axiom to the test on Tuesday, offering some totally friendly, not-at-all sexist advice to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as she delivered a victory speech following Democratic presidential primary wins in Florida, Ohio and North Carolina.

It doesn’t seem to occur to Wing that criticizing politicians is a pundit’s job.
