President Donald J. Trump has reportedly declared journalists to be “among the most dishonest human beings on earth.”* I was therefore momentarily heartened when I noticed that the New York Times promptly corrected a misstatement of fact in an Op-Ed piece by Gail Collins:

Correction: February 16, 2017

An earlier version of this article
misstated the amount of time left
until Inauguration Day 2021. It is
three years and 48 weeks, not three
years and 44 weeks.

*As of February 7, 2017, according to the New York Times, Mr. Trump has, since declaring his candidacy for president in June 2015, referred to the New York Times in his Twitter posts in the following ways:

“making up stories & sources!” , “have gotten it wrong for two years” , “failing” , “writes total fiction concerning me” , “FAKE NEWS” , “is still lost!” , “bad and inaccurate coverage of me” , “DISHONEST” , “got me wrong right from the beginning and still have not changed course, and never will” , “dwindling subscribers and readers” , “so false and angry” , “FAKE NEWS!” , “wrong about me from the very beginning” , “failing” , “failing” , “complaints about them are at a 15 year high” , “they continue to cover me inaccurately and with a nasty tone!” , “Not nice” , “failing” , “upset that they looked like fools in their coverage of me” , “failing” , “so totally wrong on transition” , “failing” , “How dishonest are they” , “BAD coverage of me” , “losing thousands of subscribers because of their very poor and highly inaccurate coverage of the "Trump phenomena"” , “just write whatever they want to write, making up sources along the way!” , “don't even call us anymore” , “failing” , “failing” , “failing” , “irresponsible intent” , “failing” , “Really disgusting” , “a laughingstock rag!” , “willing to say anything” , “failing” , “has gone nuts” , “failing” , “only writes dishonest hits!” , “seriously failing” , “no longer a credible source” , “at the back of the pack” , “has not reported properly” , “failing” , “a dying newspaper” , “failing” , “gets worse and worse by the day” , “failing” , “Their reporting is fiction” , “failing” , “Very dishonest!” , “newspaper of fiction” , “failing” , “a joke” , “failing” , “failing” , “a total lie” , “These people are sick!” , “failing” , “failing” , “So totally dishonest!” , “failing” , “Very dishonest!” , “failing” , “failing” , “Every article is unfair and biased” , “will always take a good story about me and make it bad” , “Failing” , “Very sad!” , “a disgusting fraud” , “has become a joke!” , “false, malicious & libelous” , “failing” , “totally dishonest” , “failing” , “failing” , “failing” , “a fraud!” , “so dishonest” , “totally dishonest” , “failing” , “DISHONEST!” , “Wow, I have had so many calls from high ranking people laughing at the stupidity of the failing @nytimes piece” , “failing” , “Everyone is laughing at the @nytimes for the lame hit piece they did on me and women” , “A joke!” , “wrote yet another hit piece on me” , “failing” , “has lost its way!” , “the most inaccurate coverage constantly” , “bad” , “Always trying to belittle” , “Becoming irrelevant!” , “a seriously failing paper” , “covers me so inaccurately” , “failing” , “Really bad people!” , “never even call to fact check” , “They knowingly write lies” , “truly one of the worst newspapers” , “failing” , “failing” , “allows dishonest writers to totally fabricate stories” , “failing” , “change your false story” , “boring articles” , “should focus on fair and balanced reporting” , “SAD!” , “big help will be needed fast” , “incompetent” , “made all bad decisions over the last decade” , “dopes” , “poorly run and managed” , “should be focused on good reporting and the papers financial survival” , “failing”
