Correction - FC United did *not* steal cup tickets

 Reuters, and many who rely on them for stories, used an image of FC United's badge to go with their "Man arrested after theft of FA Cup semi-final tickets" story. The text below the image read: "The emblem of FC United of Manchester is seen as players warm up during a training session in Manchester, November 1, 2010. REUTERS/Phil Noble". Anybody who didn't read the full story might assume FC United had something to do with the theft, and Reuters has since posted a correction.

The following has been found to include: "Corrects first picture issued with reference to FC United of Manchester. The team is not connected to the story in any way" in their RSS feed.
