‘New York Times’ Writes Article About Daft Punk, Can’t Be Bothered to Learn Their Names

Journalism is so hard, you guys. There’s so much research and reporting required, and then you actually have to communicate correct information to the public! Tiny, unknown newspaper <The New York Times recently talked to tha kidz about that hip Daft Punk group they’re all into, and it would’ve been fine if they’d only managed to know the names of the musicians they wrote about. The editors recently added a correction to some small typos that totally don’t reveal anything about the workings of one of the world’s most elite publications:

“Because of editing errors, an earlier version of this article misstated the group’s name twice. As the article correctly noted elsewhere, it is Daft Punk, not Daft Puck or Daft Pink. Because of a production error, an earlier version of the picture caption with the article reversed the identities of the duo. Thomas Bangalter is on the left, and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo is at the right.”
