Renee Montagne has a correction for Thursday's segment "Word of Mouth" with Tina Brown, the editor-in-chief of The Daily Beast.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

And now, a correction: In my conversation with Tina Brown yesterday, we discussed a New York Times magazine cover story co-written by journalist Amanda Lindhout, who was kidnapped in Somalia and held for ransom for 15 months.

Tina Brown told us that Lindhout gave birth as a result of being raped while in captivity. According to Lindhout herself, it is not true that she had a child. She dispels the rumor in writing about her experiences in captivity in her book, "A House in the Sky."
