Bloggers are watching you

It's becoming a given that if someone writes a news story that contains an error, bloggers will draw attention to it.

Here's one in the New York Times that has Tennessee a'twitter: 36 Hours in Knoxville in the Sunday Travel section. It starts out: KNOXVILLE is often called “the couch” by the people who live there.

Problem is, no one in Knoxville ever heard that before. And the Tennessee bloggers are letting the Times know. The story is all over the 'net since Nashville's Knoxville's Instapundit, probably the most read blog, posted it. (Thanks for the reader comment. Brain fade.)

Lots of links on Michael Silence's blog at the Knoxville News, including a letter Silence sent to the Times' Public Editor. Lots on Jack Lail's blog too. The story was number one on the Times list of most-blogged stories. Now I've added another.

  • Err...

    Instapundit's not in NASHville.

    Why do you think he knows so much about KNOXville?
