The New York Times corrected a recent story that said The Michigan Daily was the sole news source in Ann Arbor. The article features student publications that have "stepped in to fill the void" after more than 2,000 newspapers accross the country have closed or merged. But its initial description of the Daily failed to mention a few key details, namely that the  Ann Arbor News prints twice a week and features daily coverage of Ann Arbor happenings on MLive.com.

The story has garnered criticism from some local journalists, including Crain's senior editor Chad Livengood. 

Livengood shouted out the reporting by MLive staff, which scarcely made the cut in the Times feature.
