The Hill Finds Error in TheWrap Story

The Hill‘s Editor Hugo Gurdon uncovered a sizable error in TheWrap’s recent story on traffic at congressional news sites, in which Politico topped The Hill and Roll Call.

“ComScore didn’t measure Roll Call‘s July traffic at 690,000 but at only 69,000, so the story was out by a factor of ten,” he wrote. “The comparison shows The Hill‘s traffic is 15 times higher than Roll Call‘s.”

TheWrap is taking the correction seriously, has amended the story and is even in the midst of changing the graphic on the original piece.
