Slate's mistakes.

(Continued from Page 1)

In a April 16 “TV Club,” Patrick Radden Keefe misidentified the part of Don Draper’s face with which he mentioned ringing Pete Campbell’s doorbell. It’s his chin, not his nose.

In an April 15 “Politics” article, John Dickerson referred to Dmitry Medvedev as Russia’s former president. Medvedev is in office until May 7.

In the April 10 "Explainer," Forrest Wickman incorrectly described the process by which one large company buys another. The executives rarely assemble in one place to exchange paperwork. Nor do they usually meet up for a "closing dinner" to celebrate the deal. That was how it worked in the 1990s; today, lawyers for the companies finalize a deal via email or conference call.
