I do not believe that it is the right of any media to go back and make changes (beyond correcting) grammatical or spelling errors, without indicating that a change was made. It's certainly an interesting issue.</p> Hey Boyd, my view is that, like any blog, if it is a substantive re-write of text that changes the context, adds new information, or deletes information, then those changes and updates should be tracked.

I am still not sure of your point of view on the question you raise: "should the reporter - for the sake of transparency - have made the changes as a discrete "update" to the original with an adjusted timestamp, or was he within his rights to make the changes into the existing story without reflecting the fact that the original story had in fact been altered?"</p> <p>This affects any blogger who posts something then quickly realizes an error was made. Should you 'track' the change or simply edit tom make the post more accurate. Your view?</p> Brendan . . .
