Slate's mistakes.
Jan. 6 2006 10:46 AM


In the Jan. 5 "Fighting Words," Christopher Hitchens used an incorrect term for "Eretz Israel Ha'shlema," the "complete" land of Israel.


In the Jan. 5 "Surfergirl," Dana Stevens suggested that Friends offered no explanation why Monica and friends lived in such a large apartment. In fact, it was Monica and Ross' grandmother's rent-controlled apartment. Also, she mistakenly claimed that Ellen DeGeneres had hosted an Academy Awards ceremony and that the Envelope broke the story on Thursday rather than Wednesday.

In a Jan. 4 "Explainer," Daniel Engber originally and incorrectly stated that two men have been convicted of leaking classified material to the press. Jonathan Randel, who sold unclassified DEA information to a British publication, was convicted under a law that prohibits stealing or improperly selling government property.

In a Dec. 29, 2005, "DVD Extras," Grady Hendrix originally and incorrectly misidentified the model year of the General Lee. It's a '69 Dodge Charger, not a '68.
