Slate’s Mistakes for the Week of Dec. 5

In a Dec. 9 World, Mary Harris misstated that there is no federal refugee resettlement agency.

In a Dec. 5 History, Rebecca Brenner Graham described Adam Smith as a “17th-century philosopher.” He lived in the 18th century.

In a Dec. 3 The Surge, Jim Newell originally wrote “the House Judiciary Committee” when “the House Judiciary Committee Republicans” was intended.
