Courtesy of Reason, we learn of a major, major correction to an article in Slate.  To wit:

Correction, Oct. 24, 2014: Due to a production error, this piece was missing a map and therefore misrepresented a map showing where Americans believe that burning the flag should be illegal as a map showing gay porn downloads across the country. The missing map has been added.

Gay porn downloads instead of opposition to flag-burning?  Wishful thinking on the part of Slate, perhaps?  Or merely a slip of the finger on the keyboard?  Your guess is as good as mine . . . but I know what my guess is!

That is assuming that what the folks at Slate do can be characterized as "thinking".
