Red pen.

In a Feb. 18 "Technology" column, Farhad Manjoo misstated the procedure for accessing Gmail with two-factor authentication if you lose your cell phone. Along with giving you a set of backup codes, Google also asks you to set up a backup phone number for emergencies.

In a Feb. 18 "Culturebox," Grady Hendrix misspelled the last name of graphic designer Christian Swinehart.


In the Feb. 16 "Politics," David Weigel misspelled the last name of NARAL's Elizabeth Shipp.

In a Feb. 11 "DoubleX," Katha Pollitt did not originally specify that the New Republic editors referenced are those listed at the top of the magazine's masthead. In addition, she speculated that the executive editor's role at the magazine might be similar to that of a managing editor. It is not.

In a Feb. 11 "Weigel" blog post, David Weigel wrote that Sarah Palin wore a red jacket and black skirt for her 2008 RNC speech. She did not.

In a Feb. 10 "Moneybox," Bethany McLean misstated the name of the Federal Housing Finance Agency, referring to it erroneously as the Federal Housing Finance Authority.

In the Jan. 26 "Explainer," Brian Palmer incorrectly stated that the USDA was primarily responsible for regulating salmon on the commercial market. In fact, the USDA's Agricultural Marketing Service regulates salmon being purchased by the federal government. Inspection and grading for the general commercial market are handled by NOAA.
