The horror

The story online is corrected now, but here's the original lede:

The tiny Chevrolet Spark will launch next year as General Motors’ first mass-produced pink car for U.S. markets.

Really? Look, I know Chrysler is the one with the ads that say "This is the Motor City," but ... the Sunday bizness section had nobody within shouting range whose first reaction to that was "then who made pink Cadillacs?"

(While we're at it? Don't begin corrections by saying an article "contained incorrect information." That's why it's a correction. Tell us what you did wrong and get it over with.)

Boy, I'm having a lot of trouble figuring out why automotive paint colors constitute news, even in Detroit.
