I had what I think was a pretty good experience with a food journalist at the Edmonton Journal (our local paper) recently. When the article came out this morning I noticed there were a few errors, probably honest ones (i.e. maybe I didn't say something clearly, or her notes got mixed up) and honestly, none of them are earth shattering....unless our stellar headmistress is upset at having been credited for the special effect on on the Matrix! The bit about Blog-Appetit is incorrect in a number of ways - but that probably wouldn't be apparent to anyone that hasn't participated in it and don't know if anyone who particpated would particularly care.
As I know there are a few journalists by trade amongst our numbers, and as this was really my first encounter with journalists, I was wondering if I ought to contact the writer to clarify the mistakes? It's not like there's justification for posting a correction notice or anything. If I was in her shoes, and there's nothing that can be done about it now, I don't know whether I would want to know. I think I would, but that's just me.
I'm keen to hear what others have done in this circumstance. Do you contact the journalist and let them know? Would they be able to do anything about it anyway? Do I have an obligation to let her know?
