Slate's mistakes.
Nov. 26 2010 7:15 AM


In a Nov. 23 "Politics," David Weigel described Malia Obama as President Obama's youngest daughter. Malia is older than Sasha. Because of an editing error, the article referred to Todd Palin's participation in the Iditarod sled dog race. Palin was a champion snowmobile racer and competed in the Iron Dog snowmobile race.

The Nov. 22 "DoubleX" stated that the Dallas Cowboys play on Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend. The game was Thursday, on Thanksgiving Day. The error was introduced by an editor.


In the Nov. 22 "Customer," Timothy Noah stated that JetBlue charges $12 to rent its passengers a blanket and pillow. The airline charges $7, and the blanket and pillow are sold, not rented.

In a Nov. 22 "Politics," Christopher Beam incorrectly identified Mike Lee as a representative-elect of Utah. He is a senator-elect.

In the Nov. 19 Slatest, Jessica Loudis implied that NYT reporter David Rohde's kidnappers accepted bribes for his release. Pakistan's intelligence service released the kidnappers after concluding that they did not accept bribes and that no ransom was paid.

In a Nov. 9 "Book Club," Ann Powers misspelled Pete Hamill's last name.

In a Nov. 8 "Book Club," Jody Rosen misspelled Kitty Kelley's last name.
