Slate’s mistakes.

The Aug. 24 Gist show page misstated which episode it was. It was Episode 814, not 813.

In an Aug. 24 Slatest, Joshua Keating misspelled the name of the town of Ripoll and misstated that it is south of Barcelona. It is north of Barcelona.


In an Aug. 24 Slatest, Sean Tubbs misstated that Charlottesville, Virginia’s City Council ordered an independent review board during a closed-door meeting on Thursday. The review had been previously scheduled.

Due to a production error, a photo caption in an Aug. 21 Roads and Kingdoms misidentified an image as Fatim Zahra Boushit bartending at the Hidden Cellar in Seoul’s Haebangchon neighborhood. The photo is of a bar in Haebangchon called Olde Knives and its owner, who goes by the nickname “Master.”

In an Aug. 21 War Stories, Fred Kaplan included two transcription errors in a quotation of a speech by President Donald Trump. Trump said service members “deserve to return to a country that is not at war with itself at home” and “let us find the courage to heal our wounds within.”

Due to a photo provider error, the caption in an Aug. 17 Jurisprudence misidentified a Unitarian Universalist minister as a priest.

In a July 29 XX Factor, Ruth Graham misstated that 35 percent of women and 26 percent of men favored Trump in February. They favored Trump's impeachment, not Trump.

In an Oct. 16 XX Factor, Deborah Tuerkheimer inaccurately described the resolution in a New Jersey case involving allegations of criminal sexual contact. The reference to that case has been removed.
