Oops! Iowa City Press-Citizen story has Romney as president-elect

— Iowa City Press-Citizen

There was a lot of excellent election reporting last night (and campaign coverage throughout the year), but readers love to share the screw-ups that they find. The editor of Gannett’s Iowa City Press-Citizen editor wasn’t available to discuss this when I called, but a staffer confirms that “President-elect Mitt Romney” appeared on 12A of today’s paper. (Janelle Rettig tweeted the clip and Patrick Hogan forwarded it to me.)

The good news is that the Press-Citizen has President Obama as the winner on its front page.
