In a July 2 Brow Beat, Rhodes Murphy misspelled actress Katherine Langford’s first name.

In a July 2 Future Tense, Stephen Harrison misidentified a Wikipedia user as a Wikipedia admin.

Due to a photo provider error, a June 28 Sports misidentified the referee in the Women’s World Cup match between France and the United States. She was Kateryna Monzul, not Maryna Striletska.
