Dean Baquet's First Correction?
But I was encouraged in my assumption that Carroll had retired from the Sun by John Spano's story on the Los Angeles Times' web site, which reports, incorrectly, that "he was editor of the Baltimore Sun from 1991-98."
UPDATE: They fixed it. Glad I could be of service.
*Yacht, Neiman, whatever. Turns out Carroll was intent on leaving the Sun in 2000 to take a cushy job running the Neiman Fellowship Program at Harvard University when TribCo convinced him to take over the Times.
