STOP THE PRESSES! WaPo Express Catches Error

The design team at WaPo Express caught their whopper of a front page mistake 30 minutes after publishing last night.

As a result, only about 10-15K actual fudged print copies made it to newsstands this morning. The team that caught the bungle included the male employee who uploads the front page to the Newseum. As it was explained to FishbowlDC, “Point A didn’t connect to Point B.”

While the presses were not officially stopped, the plates were changed at a natural point in the run. Our insider won’t name names as to who was responsible, but here’s how it all went down: Designer arrives home, talks to partner about number on cover, realizes ‘OH FUCK,’ e-mails editor/production manager, fixed and resent.

Below is the corrected cover.
