Who's Counting?

 
This bug appeared in a news report published by Sports Illustrated on Sep 17, 2015 by Associated Press. View the original news report.
Bug Type:  Faulty Statistics or Math

A September 9th wire story, ("Tokyo Olympics plans stumble on stadium fiasco, logo fuss") comparing Japan's preparations for its 1964 and 2020 Olympics says: "Today, 56 years on, Japan's image is on the line." The problem with that staement is that it has only been 51 years since 1964, but who's counting - definitely not the editors of Sports Illustrated.

I meant "statement" not "staement."
