News: AP corrects story on Pacquiao victory

Manny wins, courtesy of AP and Yahoo!Earlier, several newspapers and websites based in the United States carried news from the Associated Press (which, to me, is the best news wire service in the world) on Manny Pacquiao’s victory over Mexican pug Jorge Solis.

In the first few versions of the story called lead write-throughs, AP said Manny stopped Solis in the seventh round of their match held at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Thus, eager publishers pulled up the AP file on the story and published it on their websites.

Fortunately, AP redeemed itself, at least in my eyes, by issuing a new lead write-through, saying Pacquiao floored Solis in the eighth.
