    That's good. Looks like the editors have felt obliged to take notice :). They will hopefully find this could become a habit for this article, and may be be a bit more diligent in future.

    Needs to be archived.

    Originally: "Tuller has also posted a 15,000 word review of it via the website of a Berkeley colleague."

    At the current Reuters link: "Tuller has also posted a 15,000 word review of it via a website hosted by a Columbia University professor."

    On archive (even after the new update at a different address? - I don't understand tbh):

    "Tuller has also posted a 15,000 word review of it."

    I like the one that's so blunt - like even just the fact it's hosted by a Columbia University professor is too positive a thing to bear to say about Tuller's work!

    "Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story misstated where David Tuller published a 15,000-word review of the PACE study. It was published on the Virology Blog hosted by Columbia University professor Vincent Racaniello."

    Is this the only amendment?

    So they still describe David Tuller as a "former journalist", give the impression that he has no current professional affiliation with the University of California, Berkley, and is only "crowdfunded by a global band of CFS/ME sufferers, their families and patient activists"--and this "band" enables Tuller to be a full-time online activist who since October 2015 has worked on nothing else than "more than 140 blog posts amounting to tens of thousands of words attacking studies of psychological treatments and conferences"?

    Wow, that's really the high art of biased journalism.

    Dear Kate Kelland, dear Reuters editors, in case you never listened to a "global band of CFS/ME sufferers" and their carers, here's your chance:



    Edited for clarity.

    maybe a reply that the article has been amended and further corrections to inaccuracies and false statements will likely be necessary in the near future.
