Slate's mistakes.

In the Dec. 28 "Jurisprudence," Niko Karvounis referred to Mitt Romney as the first viable Mormon presidential candidate. In 1976, Congressman Mo Udall, a Mormon, ran a credible campaign for the Democratic nomination.


In the Dec. 24 "Today's Blogs," Bidisha Banerjee described Novo Nordisk as a stem-cell research company. It's actually a pharmaceutical manufacturer that conducts stem-cell research.

In the Dec. 21 "Television," Troy Patterson incorrectly described Allen Iverson as a "Philadelphia 76ers point guard." He has played for the Denver Nuggets since December 2006.

In the Dec. 17 "Explainer," Michelle Tsai incorrectly said the sixth month in the Islamic calendar was Rabi' al-thani rather than Jumada al-thani. Also, according to the Muslim calendar, the Algiers explosions occurred on the first day of the 12th month in 1428, not the 12th day of the first month.
