UPDATE: Trib Tweaks Stadium Article

After this blog pointed out some misleading aspects of a recent Tampa Tribune story on the Rays' impending meeting with Hillsborough Co. commissioners, the paper digital media company quickly retracted several grafs from the online version of the article.

I pointed out how the story mislead on the ABC Coalition's recommendations - the entire graf was then removed.

Also removed was a line that appeared tongue-in-cheek even though it really wasn't:
"Even Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig has said the team needs a new stadium."
Ironically, the Trib failed to correct one seemingly large factual error: "several studies have suggested Tropicana Field has outlived its usefulness."  But I'll take the changes as a compliment nonetheless.  The article was updated at 6:55 a.m. Monday morning, just 49 minutes after I published the blog post.
