A series of errors in the news

An article on Sunday about safety concerns over fighting around a nuclear power plant in southern Ukraine misspelled the name of the Ukrainian state nuclear company. An article on Friday about the arrest of former Puerto Rico Governor Wanda V zquez for corruption charges misrepresented this quotation: Not even the indictment alleges that she was enriched one cent. Ignacio Fern ndez, a lawyer for Ms. V zquez, made the statement, not Luis Plaza. An article on Saturday about Indiana's restrictive new abortion law misidentified the institution at which Jennifer Drobac is a law professor. It is Indiana University's McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis, not Indiana University Bloomington.

A column on Monday about the defamation case against Alex Jones was incompletely described as a data file of several hundred gigabytes in size that his lawyers sent a lawyer for the plaintiffs. It contained some of Mr. Jones's cellphone records and other data, not only his cellphone records. An obituary on Aug. 1 about Fidel V. Ramos, a former president of the Philippines, missed the date in 1986 when he publicly broke up with the dictatorship of Ferdinand E. Marcos. The obituary missed the position of Corazon C. Aquino, Mr. Ramos'predecessor, on his campaign for president. Ms. Aquino endorsed Mr. Ramos, but it was not the case that she did not endorse him. An obituary on July 24 about the singer and actress Shonka Dukureh, who played Big Mama Thornton in the movie Elvis, misstated the year Elvis Presley's version of Hound Dog, a song first recorded by Ms. Thornton. An obituary on Aug. 1 about Nichelle Nichols, actress best known for playing Lieutenant Uhura on Star Trek, misspelled the surname of one of the astronauts NASA said were inspired to join the American space program by Ms. Nichols's role. She was Judith Resnik, not Resnick.
