    Purposeful mistake? CNN, was incorrect.

    Is that like a Sorry Not Sorry? Oxymoron? ... a deliberate mistake does sound like an oxymoron, since you think that a mistake, by definition, can’t be made on purpose. But this is exactly what they mean. By deliberate mistake, they’re referring to an experiment that you design and undertake expecting that it will fail, and that it won’t be worth its cost.

    I don't watch CNN or any News Channel. And calling them news channels takes a very large leap.

    I would say purposeful is intentional, and it is shrouded with the mask of mistake. You get to say whatever you want regardless of its veracity, and then drop back and say oops.

      I guess the difference is some folks correct their mistakes while other people deny it ever happened or it was somebody else's fault. Pushing false history over a long time is different then a mistake corrected in a timely matter.
