Slate offers the correction of the year

#2

Not sure why Slate would be following a parody account, but it seems like pretty much something Trump would say. Only less offensive.

(why would someone run a parody account of Trump where they pretended he said less awful things?)


#3

Slate would like to apologise for once again drawing attention to this unpleasant occurrence.


#4

They weren’t necessarily following it. It likely just came across somebody’s radar and got retweeted unthinkingly (by whatever unpaid intern is running their Twitter feed).


#5

Someone trying to scientifically prove out Poe’s Law?


#6

“Slate is humbled” probably needs a correction more than the original error.

Slate is thrilled at the attention it’s getting. It’s the nature of Slate. No other website in creation lives the “No Such Thing As A Bad Click” philosophy more earnestly than Slate.

um, Salon?


#8

Slate - so contrarian that there’s probably an article on the way refuting the correction, arguing the original error actually vindicates journalism or somesuch


#9

The Wally Pipp to Slate’s Lou Gehrig.

Isn’t that the same paradonald account that recently fomented a delicious confusion by tweeting Trumpian outrage at the new Pavement compilation (of fairly far-out early lo-fi stuff)?

Lots of “LOL Donald Trump listens to 90s alt-rock!” reactions to that one…
