Correction requests sent to Slate, Feb. 5, Feb. 6, and Feb. 22, 2024

Slate published false information from interviewee and PolitiFact employee Louis Jacobson in a Feb. 1, 2024 article. We sent two correction requests which Slate appeared to initially heed. But Slate changed its update in a misleading way, so we sent a third correction request on Feb. 22, 2024. That request, unfortunately, has a mistake on our part. One of our examples contradicting Jacobson was Michele Bachmann, and PolitiFact has fact-checked Bachmann 62 times, not the 72 times we reported and used in a graphic. We regret the error, though the counterexample otherwise stands.
