Slate’s Mistakes for the Week of Jan. 11

In a Jan. 15 Television, Jonathan Fischer misstated that Wanda Maximoff’s powers in the Marvel movies come from the Space Stone. They stem from the Mind Stone.

In a Jan. 13 Slatest, Ben Mathis-Lilley misspelled Greg Steube’s last name.

In a Jan. 12 Future Tense, Andrew Liptak misspelled Katharine Burdekin’s first and last names.

In a Jan. 11 Future Tense, Joshua Keating misspelled Alexei Navalny’s last name.

In a Jan. 11 Future Tense, Amre Metwally misspelled Cloudflare and Kate Ruane’s last name.


In a Jan. 11 Politics, Heather Schwedel misstated that all six people Melania Trump named in her “Our Path Forward” letter—Ashli Babbitt, Benjamin Philips, Kevin Greeson, Rosanne Boyland, Brian Sicknick, and Howard Liebengood—died during the Capitol riot. Sicknick and Liebengood died after the riot.


In a Jan. 11 Slatest, Ben Mathis-Lilley misidentified the PGA of America as the PGA Tour. It is the former, not the latter, that announced that the 2022 PGA Championship will no longer be held at Donald Trump’s golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey. Mathis-Lilley also misstated the day of the week of Joe Biden’s inauguration. He will be sworn in on a Wednesday, not a Tuesday.

In a Jan. 11 Slatest, Molly Olmstead misspelled Larry Brock’s last name. She also misstated that Capt. Emily Rainey had resigned from the Army because of her participation in Wednesday’s protests. She had submitted her resignation earlier, after she was formally reprimanded for behavior at a different protest. Because the resignation process is not immediate in the Army, she was still designated as an active-duty officer at the time of the Capitol riot.

In a Jan. 10 Slatest, Daniel Politi misspelled Pamela Colloff’s first name.

In a Dec. 15 Industry, Aaron Mak misstated that Chris Pavlovski is from North Macedonia. While his family is from North Macedonia, he was born and raised in Canada.
