This qualitative analysis investigates the ethics of correction across media platforms. Using rhetorical and philosophical methods, I identify key components of corrections, associating them with accountability and other ethical precepts. Explications of three case studies follow - 60 Minutes Wednesday: The Bush Memos, Intel: The Infamous Chip Flaw, and Google in China: "Do No Evil" - supporting conclusions about the consequences of accountability (or lack thereof).
