In a March 30 “Slatest” post, Ankita Rao misspelled Nicolas Sarkozy's first name. Agence France Presse was also misspelled.

In a March 29 “Faith-Based,” Max Perry Mueller originally misspelled Arun Gandhi’s last name. He also misstated the year of Thomas Jefferson’s first presidential campaign. It was 1800, not 1802.

In a March 28 "Slatest" post, Abby Ohlheiser misspelled Las Vegas.

In a March 28 “Technology," Farhad Manjoo originally and incorrectly stated that Google’s acquisition of AdMob was investigated by the Department of Justice. The Federal Trade Commission conducted the investigation. The article also originally misspelled the last name of AdMob founder Omar Hamoui.

In the March 21 “Politics,” John Dickerson stated that the distance a home run must travel from home plate to centerfield was 400 yards. The distance in most baseball stadiums is roughly 400 feet.

In a Feb. 29 “Technology” column, Farhad Manjoo incorrectly identified Stacey Anderson-Redick as Article One Partners’ top earner. Anderson-Redick is among the company’s top earners; she was highlighted by Article One because her latest winnings put the firm over $2 million in contributions to researchers.
