From the editor: Fixing our mistakes

Dear Friends of IowaWatch:

As those of you who have followed our adventure into the wilds of the non-profit journalism movement may know, last week was one we would like to forget. Our editing system – the one I created – failed. We published some fact errors, including a serious misquote. Now, we want to do something about that, and I want your help. The errors appeared in a major explanatory project of vital importance to the public, which means more is at stake here than IowaWatch’s wounded ego.
