Slate’s Mistakes for the Week of Oct. 5

In an Oct. 9 Politics, Aymann Ismail misattributed a 2018 tweet to Kayleigh McEnany. The tweet was sent by the @PressSec account when Sarah Huckabee Sanders was White House press secretary.

In an Oct. 7 Moneybox, Cleo Levin misspelled Moleskine.

In an Oct. 7 World, Joshua Keating misspelled Nelson Mandela’s last name.

Due to an editing error, an Oct. 6 Politics misspelled Erica Werner’s last name and the caption initially misstated that the photo was taken on Tuesday. The photo was taken on Monday.

In an Oct. 5 World, Joshua Keating misstated the date when a Foreign Policy piece on sick world leaders was published. It was published in 2012, not 2008.

In an Oct. 5 War Stories, Fred Kaplan misstated the number of Americans infected with the coronavirus. It is over 7 million, not 1 million.

In an Oct. 3 Medical Examiner, Shannon Palus misstated that Donald Trump announced in a tweet that he and Melania had tested positive for COVID-19 at 12:54 a.m. EST. It was 12:54 a.m. EDT.
