Slate’s Mistakes for the Week of Dec. 26

In a Dec. 29 Moneybox, Heather Tal Murphy misstated that airlines only have to refund customers if they are responsible for the cancellation. Airlines are supposed to give customers the option to be fully refunded, regardless of what caused the cancellation.

In a Dec. 27 Slate Quiz, Ray Hamel misidentified the measurement of the positions and distance of stars in the Milky Way as telemetry. It is astrometry.

In a Dec. 24 Music, Keith Johnston misidentified Robert F. Kennedy as Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

In a Dec. 22 Slatest, Shirin Ali misattributed to Winston Churchill a quote about having enemies. It is often attributed to him, but he is not its source.

In a Dec. 20 Jurisprudence, Jody Madeira misstated that West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency was decided in 2020. It was in 2022.
