Raleigh News & Observer corrects error . . . online — and in print

Rob Christensen’s column now has corrected  sub silentio the attribution of “riverboat gamble” to Bob Dole that I complained about here.  So the online version now gets the attribution right:

Trickle-down economics. Yes, the same warmed-over philosophy that the elder George Bush once called “voodoo economics” and Howard Baker called “a riverboat gamble.”

Waiting to see if the print version (to which I still subscribe) ‘fesses up.   UPDATE:  Corrected on page A2, August 8.
