The Year in Oops

Regret the Error offers up "Crunks 2008: The Year in Media Errors and Corrections." Including retractions like this one:
An article published on July 20 stated that Chris Evert admitted in an interview to having an affair with Greg Norman while both were married to their previous partners, and the affair caused the demise of their marriages. That article was incorrect because Ms Evert did not make that admission. The Sunday Mail apologises to Ms Evert and Mr Norman for the error.
I found the roundup via Andrew Sullivan, who pointed to this absolute gem:
In the June 20 “Culturebox,” Jonah Weiner stated that Lil Wayne was the first hip-hop artist to fantasize about eating his competition. Other rappers have contemplated consuming their rivals.
