Bonnie Ford tweeted a public apology to Ross for getting his name wrong.

She answered my email, with an apology and promised to correct the error. She didn't mention she was gonna tweet, but that is awesome.
in my country I never trust those journalists who covers/writes about this sport to really know it or/and to do the check. I used to read articles like "Mao Asada won her first world title with a quad", "Plushenko's THROW quad", and "Johnny Weiss".
Publications should have copy desks with copy editors who do the 10 minutes of fact-checking before an article is published. However, my understanding is that these positions have been cut right and left as print and online publishing venues seek profitability.
Yes, this reporter should have fact checked before submitting the article. I wouldn't agree that wikipedia is the way to go, but there are other sources out there that do have the correct information.
Someone brought up fewer errors in football, baseball and basketball articles. That is very true, but sports reporters are hired on their ability to write those types of articles. They are required to write about other sporting events, but few are ever screened for their ability to do that. The office I work in now is hiring a sports writer for public relations purposes. Those three sports are all these guys know. One of them will be hired despite the fact that we have 12 different sports available to our students. If I only knew three areas of my job I'd be out of luck, but we're supposed to consider ourselves lucky that one of these guys knows 3 out of 12.
Tara finished 15th at worlds then won the next year. I'm not saying Ryan will do the same, but 15th place one year doesn't mean anything in another year.Men: Bradley finished 15th at worlds in his only previous appearance in 2007, when he was the U.S. silver medalist. With Dornbush and equally untried bronze medalist Scott Miner filling the other two spots, it's unlikely the U.S. will hang onto its three slots at worlds for 2012. The flip side is the obvious promise of those two young skaters.
I feel like Worlds last year for Ryan is irrelevant considering how badly injured he was.
