Miami Herald Misidentifies Carl Bernstein as Carol Bernstein

The name Carl Bernstein is drilled into the heads of journalism students in J-schools across the country. He's the Pulitzer Prize winner who uncovered the Watergate scandal with Bob Woodward at The Washington Post. He is a journalism deity. He is also a man. Named Carl. Somehow, however, on Sunday The Miami Herald accidentally misspelled his byline as Carol Bernstein. He did not recently decide to switch genders.


Bernstein and Woodward reunited to write a retrospective on Watergate's 40th anniversary for The Post. The Herald re-ran this on Sunday. According to Romenesko, it carried this byline in print.
