Wash. Times admits to having "reported erroneously" on grant to ACORN

From an October 8 Washington Times article:
The Washington Times reported erroneously Wednesday that the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which is part of Homeland Security, awarded the nearly $1 million grant to ACORN in spite of a clear signal from Congress that it intended to cut off funding to the group.
UPDATED: And FYI, this admission by the Times is not in connection with the erroneous "racist" ACORN reporting of Joseph Curl, which Media Matters has highlighted. That remains a separate matter entirely, and the Times still refuses to correct the errors in those articles.
