The News Tribune wins recognition for one of the year's best corrections

A correction published in The News Tribune came in for honors as one of the years favorite corrections at Regret the Error.

"A photo caption on Tuesday’s Page A8 said a student was performing the Heimlich maneuver on a dummy. The student was actually playing around and pretending to choke the dummy."

Miami Herald Staffers Give Tips on How to Commit Adultery (NewsBusters)

I'm not sure which is funnier about this Miami Herald story; that Adultery 101 was published in that newspaper or the fact that it was actually written by Herald staffers.

It is so bizarre of a story that it should be marked down as a sign of desperation to attract readers in the midst of a calamitous circulation plunge.

So let us now join the Miami Herald staffers as they present their readers with "helpful tips" on how to commit adultery with a celeb shoutout to Tiger Woods:

So you're left scratching your head, wondering how a guy like Tiger Woods would allow himself to get caught cheating on his wife.

We're not saying we condone Tiger's actions -- the best way to not get caught cheating on a spouse or significant other is to not cheat on your spouse or significant other.

But from observing celeb and non-celeb cheaters from the sidelines for years, following these basic rules would help one cover his tracks.

One would think that if there is anything the fine people at the News Tribune would be expert at, it would be dummies.
