Participating News Organizations

This project was made possible through the cooperation and professional spirit of news organizations that granted permission to post or link to scores of stories on this site free of charge, even though many of those stories are among the most embarrassing mistakes that those organizations have ever made. The news outlets made this contribution for the greater good of helping journalists learn from those mistakes and reducing the infiltration of fake stories into news reports. The Philip Merrill College Journalism thanks them for their generosity.
