Patrick Healy, the reporter who originally broke the "foreign leaders want Kerry to win" story, made a correction -- apparently Kerry didn't say 'foreign leaders' at all, but 'more leaders'.

Now in the context of the remarks it's mostly splitting hairs, but given that the Pubs spin point on this has been "If you don't tell us who they were you must be lying and shut up already", accuracy does matter. And major props to Healy for coming forward. (You'll notice, for instance, the CNN article linked above already contains the corrected version).

Here's a thought -- maybe Big Media wouldn't be on the wane if they employed more people like Healy.
