In an article on a survey of Internal Revenue Service officials -- a copy of which was released last Thursday by the National Coalition of IRS Whistleblowers, a group founded by the Church of Scientology -- The Sun reported erroneously that 21 percent of the officials replied "no" when asked if they had been "completely honest" in their responses to questions in the survey.

In fact, less than 13 percent of the officials replied "no." That figure is less than average for such a question on such surveys, according to the Joseph & Edna Josephson Institute of Ethics, which conducted the study.
