Do you have access to the Financial Times website? There is a very
recent article about misquotations that apparently mentions the Quote
Investigator and links to the QI website. I cannot access the article
because it is behind a paywall.

If you would be willing to access the article and forward the text to
me off-list that would be very helpful. You could cut and paste the
text or grab an HTML only version.

The information will be used to create a short entry in the "Media
Coverage" section of the QI website.
