Honolulu

Inaccurate “Correction” by Star-Advertiser

·By John Temple

Maybe it’s time for Honolulu’s newest news organization to hire a public editor, the way The New York Times does.

That person could be the readers’ representative, a completely independent and knowledgeable journalist to examine the paper’s work and help keep it honest. That’s the kind of thing the sole newspaper in a city needs to think of that isn’t as necessary when a city has two newspapers.

A good example of why this might be a good idea for the Star-Advertiser can be found in the bottom left corner of Page
