It’s a very respected newspaper, but nobody is perfect, not even the FT.
This morning the salmon-colored daily carries on its first page a photo of Angela Merkel and Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti. But the caption says “Angela Merkel and Mario Draghi, ECB President, talk in Berlin yesterday”.
Having worked as a journalist in the printed press for many years, I’ve seen mistakes happen. But that one is big indeed.
Journalists call both Mario ‘Super Mario’. That’s confusing too. But what a Super Blunder!
