DeKalb is not Decatur

Posted By on Mon, Jun 23, 2008 at 6:38 PM

Do you find it annoying when the news media uses the name Decatur to refer to places or events that are outside Decatur's city limits?

The AJC's coverage of yesterday's double-murder in DeKalb County was first reported with the headline "2 women killed, children flee in Decatur." Later in the day, the headline was corrected to "2 women killed, children flee in DeKalb."


Are there other parts of Atlanta so routinely misidentified?

And, yes, I live in Decatur.
