USA Today publisher Gannett will make a correction to its latest story about credit scores. You can believe that prediction because it isn’t easy to get around fundamental numbers.
But, McPaper is in good company. Testifying before the U.S. House of Representatives, VantageScore chief Barrett Burns committed the same error twice, according to the official record. VantageScore’s account of history is peculiarly different.
Further, Gannett will make a correction because the company has never come to terms with its inaccurate story about employers and credit scores. The newspaper’s response was to use the pathetic and annoying “Read the story again” strategy. Its editorial department (fine people, all) is, thankfully, cooperative and much wiser. Happy Groundhog Day, by the way.
