Grapevine: New York Times issues correction on Libya

And now some fresh pickings from the Political Grapevine...

Week Response

What a difference a week makes.

We told you last Friday how the New York Times' public editor -- called out her paper -- for overlooking the Libya scandal.

Margaret Sullivan said coverage of congressional hearings should have been the lead story -- but was told that there were six better ones.

Now it seems the paper is going in the opposite direction.

Not only is Libya on the front page.

Check out this online correction.

"An earlier version of this article described incorrectly a beverage that Ahmed Abu Khattala was drinking at a hotel in Benghazi, Libya. It was a strawberry frappe, not mango juice, which is what he had ordered."

Open and Shut Case

Democrats are hammering Mitt Romney for asking for -- "binders full of women" -- so he could hire more females for his staff and cabinet as governor of Massachusetts.

One of the women included in one of those binders -- Elizabeth Childs -- is proud of it.

She says she was hired as commissioner of mental health -- as a nod to her expertise -- not affirmative action.

And while binders may not have been used -- it appears President Obama received something similar.

From the Chicago Tribune in March of 2009 -- quote -- "In a bid to get more Muslim Americans working in the Obama administration -- a book with resumes of 45 of the nations most qualified -- has been submitted to the White House."

Brace for Impact

And finally -- Brazil's national electricity grid is bracing for possible power outages tonight.

It's the finale of "Avenida Brasil" -- a smash soap opera.

In case you haven't been keeping up -- it's a story of a young women's vengeance on her stepmother -- who abandoned her in a landfill.
