WSJ Correction: Fox Not Sympathetic to Bush

NEW YORK The front page of Monday's Wall Street Journal carried a
below-the-fold campaign report by Shailagh Murray and Greg Hitt. The
story contained this nugget before its jump: "Mr. Bush believes the
key to victory lies in his party's conservative core. He gave a rare
interview over the weekend to Fox News, a network sympathetic to Mr.
Bush and popular with Republicans."
And here's a correction, in its entirety, from the "Corrections &
Amplifications" column in today's paper:
"News Corp.'s Fox News was incorrectly described in a page-one article
Monday as being sympathetic to the Bush cause."
