In a Jan. 26 "Today's Papers," Daniel Politi incorrectly identified the writer of a Los Angeles Times column on Baby Einstein products and the State of the Union address as Ruth Marcus. The writer is Rosa Brooks.
In a Jan. 25 "Has-Been" blog entry, Bruce Reed incorrectly wrote that the television show Psych airs on Fox. It airs on the USA network.
In a Jan. 24 "Culturebox," Laura Kipnis imprecisely quoted a joke by comedian Sarah Silverman about being raped by a doctor.
In a Jan. 20 "Today's Papers," Ryan Grim erred in his analysis of a New York Times piece, "Armenian Editor Is Slain in Turkey." Contrary to the Slate assertion, the Times treats the Armenian genocide as fact, not historical interpretation. The newspaper's decision to mention the Turkish government's official stance—that "the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Armenians resulted from hunger and other suffering in World War I"—does not amount to an acknowledgment of that view's legitimacy.
