Snopes editor defends USA Today fact-checker by noting what is the 'hallmark of an exceptional journalist'

Yesterday we told you about one of the biggest fact-check fails of the year.

The fact-checker, after a lot of criticism, then played the victim:

An editor of Snopes defended Funke, saying that getting things wrong and then somewhat fixing them later is the mark of an excellent journalist. No, seriously:
