In a July 8 "Brow Beat" blog post, June Thomas misspelled Community actor Donald Glover's first name.

In a July 7 "Politics," Christopher Beam incorrectly stated that President Bush launched the NASA Constellation program in 2004. That was the year he outlined his "Vision for Space Exploration." The Constellation program was authorized in 2005.


In a July 3 "TV Club" entry, Hanna Rosin referred to the Friday Night Lights character Virgil Merriweather as Vernon.

In the July 2 "Explainer," Christopher Beam misspelled the middle name of Johann Friedrich Overbeck. The headline also misspelled a comical reference to a fictional "Onkel Friedrich."

In the June 30 "Explainer," Brian Palmer incorrectly identified the Ku Klux Klan's place of origin as Pulaski County, Tenn. It was the city of Pulaski, which is in Giles County.

In the June 29 "Green Room," Jason Fagone misspelled Grosse Pointe, Mich., and incorrectly described Ron Mathis as having designed champion F1 cars; Mathis engineered winning Le Mans cars.
