To me, corrections indicate that an organisation cares about publishing truth; lack of corrections indicate a lack of care. Everyone makes mistakes now and then, that's unavoidable in a deadline-driven business such as news reporting. How the news organisations deal with them matters. Printing corrections suggests a higher standard of care to ensure that corrections won't be necessary in the first place.i actually do not give credit for corrections (unless published within maybe 2 hours). people rarely go back and reread articles they have already read.
