    • [fr/qc] Got a word from a friend (merci Berthe) about the "fined while singing happy birthday to a friend from their car" case: this is a good example of La Presse providing hot-but-often-incorrect facts and failing to correct past articles once they got the facts straightened up. My friend says it's not a rare occurence from them, and recommends to take all they write with a grain of salt, or avoid them and read slower-but-more-accurate newspapers.
      1. [Monday @ 5AM](https://www.lapresse.ca/covid-19/202004/06/01-5268157-le-spvm-distribue-des-amendes-salees.php): _"Selon elle, les agents lui ont dit qu’elle recevrait par la poste une amende de 1500 $ d’ici 10 jours et qu’advenant une deuxième infraction, elle risquait de six mois à un an de prison."_
      2. [Monday @ 12, about the same case](https://www.lapresse.ca/covid-19/202004/06/01-5268206-le-spvm-a-emis-67-constats-dinfraction.php): _"un porte-parole du SPVM a indiqué à La Presse que c’est un avertissement, et non un constat d’infraction, qui a été remis en fin de semaine à une femme dont des amis sont venus souligner l’anniversaire en voiture, à Beaconsfield. « La dame a été avertie. Elle n’a pas reçu de constat et n’en recevra pas », nous a-t-on dit."_

    Article 1 could kiiiinda be considered okay-ish if corrected through an in-article erratum after article 2. got published, but this didn't happen. Also, reading 1.'s _"selon elle"_ literally, yes the gap disappears (reading it as La Presse _"just reporting what *she* said"_), but c'm'on, this is not journalism then, this is gossip forwarding without the slightest fact-checking.

    So: one case (among others if I trust my friend's experience) where La Presse 1. doesn't check facts / fails to adequately signal un-checked facts, and 2. fails to publish in-article erratas after a fact was debunked. Not the best journalism 😕. Keep it in mind.
