Slate’s Mistakes for the Week of Sept. 20

In a Sept. 22 Politics, Ben Mathis-Lilley misstated that America’s Frontline Doctors sued the U.S. government to reverse an emergency use authorization for COVID vaccines on children aged 5 to 12. It was for children ages 12 to 15.

In a Sept. 21 Future Tense, Tana Wojczuk incorrectly reported that CRISPR technology is currently being used in clinical trials to treat chronic pain and monogenetic diseases. It is not in human trials for treating chronic pain.

In a Sept. 20 Future Tense, Tatsam Mukherjee misstated that filmmaker Prateek Vats was a student at the Film and Television Institute of India when Gajendra Chauhan was running the institute. Vats did attend FTII, but not during Chauhan’s reign.

In a Sept. 20 Jurisprudence, Scott Pilutik misidentified the case in which the high court struck members from a class action lawsuit: It was TransUnion LLC v. Ramirez not Spokeo Inc. v. Robins.
