Misreporting James O'Keefe's ACORN "Pimp" Hoax
Petri twice reports in the same story that rightwing activist James O'Keefe "dressed up as a pimp to interview members of ACORN," when in fact he never did. Rather, his videos were deceptively edited to appear that way. This fact has been known for almost a year, even as Washington Post has misreported it (without correction) in the past as well.

WaPo's "Correction" address (Corrections@WashPost.com) has ignored, Ombudsman gave me the Corrections address and Petri's email (who has also ignored my notice). Moreover, both she and Dana Milbank have been notified multiple times via both Twitter and on comments at their blog. All such notification has been ignored.
