    Alpha Naomi Wolf Takes on Beta ‘Sunday Styles’We’d understand if you couldn’t get past the front page of yesterday’s “Sunday Styles” section —between the interminable, several-years- late, and frankly pretty specious exposé on the art and science of emoticons (there’s an emoticon for Ronald Reagan? Really? When would you use that?) and the fawning and also several-years-late profile of Perez Hilton, who’s even more objectionable than his namesake, it was tough going. But if you didn’t make it to page two, you missed this delightful correction: An article last Sunday about politicians’ choice of clothing while campaigning referred incorrectly to the role of Naomi Wolf in Al Gore’s 2000 presidential campaign. She was a consultant on women’s issue and youth outreach to young voters; she was not Mr. Gore’s image consultant and was not involved in his decision to wear earth-toned clothing. Funny, you know what doesn’t have a correction? For starters, any number of Maureen Dowd columns over the years referring to Wolf as Gore’s earth-toner. And also this: the initial 1999 Time-magazine article uncovering Wolf’s role with the Gore campaign — in which one campaign official described her as a “wardrobe consultant.” Campaign Chic: Not Too Cool, Never Ever Hot [NYT]

    Last Week in Minor MisunderstandingsIn this installment of our remarkably lax-on-ourselves annotated errata, we’re not quite apologizing for a Nader flub, a Central Park slight, and another Brooklyn border gerrymander. But we do find it necessary to clarify a few things.
  33. the follow-up
    The Last Week in Minor MisunderstandingsWe wouldn’t go so far as to say we’ve been wrong. But, by the same token, there have been a few times in the last seven days we weren’t entirely right. How so? Well, we’ve got a Brooklyn border dispute, a misreading of what we’d call a confusingly written article, and a perhaps overbroad — but, still, we’ll insist, substantively correct — critique of some recent media criticism. We’ll explain after the jump.

    ‘Esquire’ Endorses, Reconsiders If you’re anything like us, you take all your political advice from men’s lifestyle magazines. So naturally you were as pleased as we were to discover that the November Esquire offers election endorsements for every race in the country. This is no easy task for a long-lead monthly, which runs the risk that campaigns can dramatically rise or fall between when the issue closes and when it arrives on newsstands. Early and Often notes that Esquire fell into just that trap — but saved itself thanks to the wonders of the Internet. What happened? Over to you, E&O. Endorsements and Takebacks [Early and Often]
