Slate's mistakes.
March 19 2010 7:09 AM


In the March 19 "Food" column, Arthur Allen referred to a 300-pound box of tomatoes. He meant to write "3,000-pound" box.

In the March 16 "Explainer," Juliet Lapidos implied that all Palestinians (meaning, the ethnic group) who live in East Jerusalem are noncitizen residents. Some are citizens.


In the March 16 "Jurisprudence," Emily Bazelon said that Ramona Ripston, who is head of the Southern California branch of the American Civil Liberties Union, had retired in February. In fact she will retire next February.

In an item in the March 15 "Slatest," Meredith Simons misspelled Rielle Hunter's first name.

In another March 15 "Slatest" item, Jessica Loudis incorrectly cited the source of an article about shootings in Mexico as the Seattle Times. The article originally appeared in the New York Times.

In a March 11 "Books," Sara Mosle misspelled Eric Hanushek's name.

An item in the March 10 edition of "The Slatest" summarized an article on the Huffington Post that incorrectly stated Ithaca College was offering $10,000 to incoming freshmen this year as an incentive to defer enrollment at the school. That incentive was offered only last year. The Huffington Post has since acknowledged the error.
