One of my colleagues was misquoted in a major daily today. A classic case of a long (approx. 1 hour) interview boiled down into one misquoted sentence.

I can’t help but think two things: 1) how does the media justify/get away with this? and 2) I’m sure that weblogs and the net have a part to play in reducing the impact (if not the occurrence) of this kind of thing – transcripts of interviews and weblogs immediately come to mind.
