A Pilgrimage

What is it about stories concerning Mike Pilgrim that lead editors to make mistakes?

Case I (a): The (New Jersey) Record

HALL BRIEFS: Mike Pilgrim, a 6-8 forward who has announced his intention to transfer to Seton Hall from Cincinnati at the Pirates' practice Monday. Pilgrim is a Cincinnati native and a cousin of Orr, another Cincinnati native.

Case I (b): The (New Jersey) Record


University of Cincinnati forward Mike Pilgrim did not announce his intention to transfer to Seton Hall, as was reported due to an editing error Wednesday in The Record. He has announced only his intention to leave Cincinnati.

Case II: The New York Daily News

Reports out of Bloomington suggest that 6-8 forward Mike Pilgrim of Indiana - Louis Orr's cousin - may transfer to Seton Hall, which would upgrade the Pirates' frontcourt.

As (correctly) noted above, however, Pilgrim is from Cincinnati, not Bloomington, and attends Cincinnati, not Indiana.
