Slate’s Mistakes for the Week of May 23

In a May 26 Metropolis, Henry Grabar misstated that Los Angeles has a full-fledged casino in Commerce, California. The Commerce casino is only a card room.

In a May 23 Future Tense, Stavroula Pabst misstated that Nina Jankowicz, the head of the now-paused DHS Disinformation Governance Board, had said in a tweet that the Hunter Biden laptop story was a “Russian influence op.” Jankowicz was livetweeting the 2020 Joe Biden–Donald Trump debate and paraphrasing Biden.

In a May 23 Politics, Molly Olmstead misrepresented Katie Britt’s husband’s activity on Twitter as “anti-Trump tweets,” when they were likes of anti-Trump tweets.

In a May 19 Jurisprudence, Saul Cornell misstated that an AR-15 is 200 times more deadly than Revolutionary War–era rifles. Based on an extrapolation from a research study, it is more like 50 times more deadly.
