Slate’s Mistakes for the Week of July 4

In a July 6 Family, Heather Schwedel misstated Yev Pusin’s mother’s age as 59. She is 60.

In a July 6 Media, Sonia Weiser misstated that a source identified as Nadia was a current tabloid editor. She’s a former tabloid editor.

In a July 4 Care and Feeding, Allison Price misstated that students’ protections at school are the law, and that FERPA prevents schools from outing a student to their parents. While students have certain protections at school, these protections do not always fall within the realm of legalities.
