"Scientists wrong yet again..."

Except that the discovery was made by scientists so the title would be "Scientists make yet another discovery" or maybe "Scientists 186,282 creationists 0"

If I scatter a coffee can full of dried beans on my property and you go out and find 143 on Monday how many do you report finding?

143.

The next day you find 6 more do you stick with the figure of 143 or do you modify it to 149?

You were correct Monday that you found 143 and knew that there might be more, but you accurately reported your findings. Finding more Tuesday did not make you wrong Monday.
