Jul 14, 2011 — How does a journalist apologize for an error? Morning Edition guest David Cay Johnston set an example Wednesday with a sincere on air apology.
Jul 14, 2011 — Reuters columnist David Cay Johnston says "there's no excuse" for the huge error he made Tuesday when he wrote that Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. had received billions of dollars in tax refunds, when in fact it had paid billions of dollars in taxes.
Jul 13, 2011 — Columnist David Cay Johnston's report "is wrong and has been withdrawn," the wire service says. News Corp. changed the way it reports some figures in 2007 and the columnist mistakenly believed that what were actually tax payments were refunds.
