The Problem

You open your morning newspaper, and there under a front-page headline reading 'Accused Child Molester Arrested" are your name and photograph. You have not been either accused or arrested. The paper has made a major mistake in identifying the person accused. You immediately call this mistake to the paper's attention, and the following day in a box on page three under the heading "Correction," the paper admits its error and apologizes for any inconvenience that may have been caused.

As a result of this episode, your life changes significantly. Your friends, neighbors, and associates have all read the original newspaper story. While many may also have read the correction published the next day, suspicion has been planted about your moral character and psychological stability. Although no one says anything directly to you, you perceive the strange looks and feel the changes in attitude that have taken place.
