Still using that "Millennials to Snake People" Chrome extension? Here's a PSA: remember to turn it off if you're writing a piece for the New York Times.

In what is perhaps my favorite editorialcorrection ever (okay, fine, nothing will top Pimpin4Paradise786), the Times clarified Wednesday that its reference to "the Time of Shedding and Cold Rocks" in a fact-check of President Trump's claims on trade was accidental.

Turns out, a staffer had left their "Millennials to Snake People" extension on — and because the quote (which originally said "Great Recession") was copied and pasted from another Times piece, it was published undetected.
