Diogenes Club: 3. New York Times: 0

From Alaska Senator Now Trails in Votes:

Republicans claimed then that traditional voting patterns among absentee voters favored Mr. Stevens’s holding on to win, but Mr. Begich countered that he had made a concerted effort to win early and absentee voters.

Mr. Begich can't make a concerted effort. A concerted effort requires more than one person so that they can work in concert with each other. I realize that it was probably Begich who made the mistake, but the Times should at least but quotes around it or add a [sic] or something.

Boo-yeah, New York Times!

(For reference: the other two times I sonned the Times: Strawberry Shortcake redux and This is probably the only chance I'll ever have at impugning the New York Times' accuracy)
