Slate's mistakes.

In the Dec. 4 " International Papers," Zac Peskowitz originally referred to Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee as India's head of state. In fact, Vajpayee is the head of government; President Abdul Kalam is the head of the state.

In the Dec. 1 " Today's Papers," Eric Umansky wrote that the New York Times didn't publish the full transcript of its interview with Syrian President President Bashar al-Assad. In fact, the Times did post such a transcript.


In the Nov. 26 edition of " Movies," David Edelstein incorrectly called Tommy Lee Jones' character in The Missing an Apache. In fact, his character only lives with and acts like the Apache.

In a Nov. 26 " Summary Judgment," Ben Williams mistakenly attributed the lone favorable review of The Haunted Mansion to Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times. It should have been pinned on the LAT's Kevin Thomas.
