The pedantry menace

Somewhat belatedly I'm nitpicking on a website from 2012. All-That-Is-Interesting.Com did a series of articles of iconic photographs from various decades, including the 1960s. This included a photograph of the 1968 assassination of Robert F. Kennedy. The article incorrectly states that Kennedy died shortly after the photograph was taken. In actual fact, he died 26 hours later in hospital. These days writers have a world of information at their fingertips, so it is not that hard to put the time in to do proper research and fact checking.
