Slate's mistakes.
Oct. 31 2003 1:34 PM


In the Oct. 23 edition of "Today's Papers," Brian Montopoli implied that only the Washington Post covered the New York Times' suggestion that Walter Duranty's Pulitzer be revoked. In fact, the Post, New York Times, and Los Angeles Times all covered the story. The article also misidentified a quote on the subject as originating in a letter from the New York Times to the Pulitzer Prize board. In fact, the quote is from an interview with NYT Executive Editor Bill Keller.

In an Oct. 27 "Chatterbox" column, Timothy Noah erroneously referred to Mohammed as a "deity." Mohammed was a prophet.

An Oct. 27"Television" article on the new Tarzan misspelled the name of the show's lead actor. His name is Travis Fimmel, not Travis Trimmel.
