Editor’s note: A May 24 story about a protest against an Israeli ambassador’s commencement speech at Brandeis University was written by a part-time correspondent who failed to disclose that he had previously editorialized in personal Internet posts against Israeli policy toward Palestinians. Globe editors learned of those posts while conducting an internal review of the Brandeis coverage. The correspondent’s failure to disclose a conflict violated Globe policy, and he should not have been assigned to cover the event. The story failed to include coverage of the substance of the remarks made by Michael Oren, Israel’s ambassador to the United States, and made no mention of an electronic petition supporting his appearance.
Correction: Because of a reporting error, the Word column in last Sunday’s Ideas section gave the wrong location for the magazine Miller-McCune. It is published in California.
Correction: Because of a reporting error, an article in last Sunday’s Globe Magazine about a house in Westport misstated the name of a river close to the house. It is near the Westport River.
