In a May 30 "Deathwatch," Christopher Beam stated that the likely scenarios would put Barack Obama ahead of Hillary Clinton by 60 pledged delegates. They would actually put him about 60 delegates away from the nomination.

In the May 29 "Movies," Dana Stevens wrote that Sex and the City, the TV series, ended in 2005. It ended in 2004.


In the May 28 "Hollywoodland," Kim Masters misspelled Ari Emanuel's last name.

In the  May 23 "Politics," Jeff Greenfield incorrectly spelled the name of singer Crystal Gayle.

In the May 22 "DVD Extras," David Zax misspelled Carrie Fisher's last name.

In the May 21 "Explainer," Chris Wilson mistakenly stated that Aron Ralston amputated his own arm in 2005. The incident occurred in 2003.

In the May 20 "Dispatches," Joshua Kucera originally stated that Azerbaijan suffered the loss of nearly 20 percent of its territory. Most analysts estimate the loss at closer to 14 percent.
