A July 21 story about a blind man and his guide dog contained major inaccuracies.

The story stated that the man was an Army veteran who lost his sight when a roadside bomb exploded. In fact, the man, John Maley, acknowledged in an interview late last week that he was not in the Army and that he lost his sight to diabetes. … We have taken steps to correct lapses in corroborating the facts in our reporting. (Chicago Tribune)


The best way to corroborate the facts in reporting is to do reporting. (The Tribune took the story down, but it survives in the cache.)
