New Way to obtain “Correction”

In its continued quest to anger the field of journalism, Google News has announced a new comment feature that will allow “newsmakers to comment on the stories in which they’re featured.”

Googlenews

While the example just provides further context to the news…why cannot this new feature be used to refute and self correct errors in articles? I think this is going to be a total disaster and you can see further commentary as to why here.

I guess obtaining a correction just got a little easier…
