In our May 9, 2014 show "Call For Help" there was a factual error that we want to correct. In Anna Sale's story "Government Assistance," former Senator Alan Simpson incorrectly stated that during the Senate Judiciary Committee's confirmation hearings of Clarence Thomas, Anita Hill testified that she and Clarence Thomas "watched porn movies together." Anita Hill actually testified during the hearing that Clarence Thomas told her about pornography that he had watched, but she made clear that they had never watched pornography together. We have cut Senator Simpson's incorrect statement from the story and removed it from the transcript. We regret the error.
