Slate's mistakes.
Sept. 14 2007 10:28 AM


In the Sept. 13 " Today's Papers," Jesse Stanchak mistakenly identified a Los Angeles Times piece on Air Force camera technology as the paper's lead story. Its lead was a local story, with an article about Hillary Clinton's appeal to anti-war voters filling the top nonlocal spot.

In the Sept. 7 "Hot Document," Bonnie Goldstein identified the wrong Walter Sharp as the adjunct Georgetown Law School professor who teaches a course on "The Law of 24." The correct Walter Sharp is associate deputy general counsel for the Defense Department, not the staff director for the Joint Chiefs of Staff.


In the Sept. 7 "Today's Blogs," Michael Weiss misstated the name of the blog Back Talk, and he misidentified the plane for which Nepal Airlines sacrificed two goats. It was a 757, not a 747.

In the Sept. 6 "Explainer," Michelle Tsai misstated the frequency of vocal-fold closures in a soprano's high C. The note requires a frequency of about 1,000 hertz, not 1,300.

If you believe you have found an inaccuracy in a Slatestory, please send an e-mail to, and we will investigate. General comments should be posted in "The Fray," our reader discussion forum.
