Post Roast: Oops from the Ombudsman

In my Reader Meter blog post last Friday, Jan. 20, I made a mistake and accused The Post of not running the Martin Luther King Jr. Day closings in print before the holiday and of publishing them only online.

I was wrong. The Post did not publish in print the holiday list of government closings and public transportation schedules on Saturday, Jan. 14 — the day I got the e-mails and phone calls on this subject and the day I checked the paper — but it did publish them in print on Sunday, Jan. 15, and Monday, Jan. 16, the holiday itself.

They appeared, respectively, on page C4 of the Metro section on Sunday and page B3 of Metro on Monday.

I should have checked the weekend papers thoroughly and I didn’t. My apologies to the staff and to my readers.
