In the Oct. 20 "80 Over 80" feature, a photograph of Mormon Apostle Neil Andersen was inadvertently used with an item about church President Thomas S. Monson. Additionally, Joe Paterno was listed as having won only one national championship instead of two.


In the Oct. 20 "Explainer," Juliet Lapidos misspelled the first name of Ethel Rosenberg.

In the Oct. 20 " Jurisprudence," Daniel Redman misstated the number of summonses issued under an unconstititional law since 2008 as being in the hundreds. The correct number is 85.

In the Oct. 16 "Explainer," Brian Palmer misspelled the French name for the Mona Lisa as La Jaconde. It's actually La Joconde.

The Oct. 16 "Bidenisms" repeated a misspelling of "Augean stables" that had run in an ABC News transcript of the vice president's remarks.
