Corrections and Clarifications

Anita Di Bianco

Corrections and Clarifications is an ongoing publication, launched in response to the glut of news reporting following 11 September 2001 — an annual edited compilation of daily revisions, retractions, re-wordings, distinctions and apologies to print, online, and radio news. Each issue is a reverse-chronological catalogue of lapses in naming and classification, of tangled catchphrases, patterns of mis-speech and inflection, connotation and enumeration, a distillation of predictive patterns and algorithmic amplifications spanning from the initial deployments of the term “fake news” to the current reckoning with the attention economy.
