Over in the UK, The Spectator notes;

Here is a little quiz. The Guardian has posted up a list here of everyone who has won the Nobel Peace Prize since its inception.

Q: Which three names are omitted from the Guardian list ( even though they do appear on the Nobelprize.org list which the Guardian has purportedly reproduced)?***

A: Menachem Begin, Shimon Peres and Yitzhak Rabin.

And what is the common link between these three names? Precisely.

Oh, I’m quite sure it’s simply a clerical error. Right?

They later update that the list has now had those names added. But one really must wonder why it took a jab like that to get them to correct a problem which absent alteration of the list as supposedly reproduced, should never have occurred.

Personally, I’d like to see their explaination for this one.

  1. No conspiracy here I’m afraid, it was a simple data entry mistake. It wasn’t just those three that were omitted – John Raleigh Mott, The Quakers and the League of Red Cross Societies all got left out as well. The editor in question has posted an explanation and apology in the comments on the original article.(I work for the Guardian, but in Technology, not editorial).

  2. Thanks for taking the time, Simon, but let’s be accurate, shall we? His mia culpa shows in the comments, not in the original article as an addendum. Further, if this is the kind of editorial control (Nee fact checking)  Guardian usually exhibits, the place is in worse trouble than I imagined. I’ll leave the real spanking to the comments there. I don’t suppose I need to add to them.
