I don't know how I missed this 150-year-old editorial retraction last month, but it's too perfect not to share:
"Seven score and ten years ago, the forefathers of this media institution brought forth to its audience a judgment so flawed, so tainted by hubris, so lacking in the perspective history would bring, that it cannot remain unaddressed in our archives...
In the editorial about President Abraham Lincoln's speech delivered Nov. 19, 1863, in Gettysburg, the Patriot & Union failed to recognize its momentous importance, timeless eloquence, and lasting significance. The Patriot-News regrets the error."
-- The editorial board of the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania Patriot-News, retracting a November 24, 1863 op-ed printed by its predecessor, the Patriot & Union, that derided Abraham Lincoln's iconic Gettysburg Address as "silly remarks" that deserved "a veil of oblivion."
