1.Sioux chief or chef?
Sometimes one letter is enough to change a word’s meaning, or a person’s profession. NPR corrected an article that made Sean Sherman a Sioux chief when he’s really a Sioux chef.
“A previous version of this story incorrectly referred to Sean Sherman as a Sioux chief. He is a Sioux chef.”
2. The New York Times’ Jan. 24 correction: “An article on Tuesday about the Supreme Court’s decision to hear a case related to vulgar trademarks referred incorrectly to the etymology of the “most versatile” curse word. It is of Middle English origin, not Anglo-Saxon.”
3. Parkland shooting survivor isn’t a gun rights advocate
Emma Gonzalez, a gun control advocate who survived the Parkland school shooting, was misidentified as a gun rights advocate. NPR’s correction:
An earlier version of this story incorrectly described Emma Gonzalez as a gun rights activist. In fact, Gonzalez was a senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High at the time of the 2018 shooting, and she is a gun control advocate.
