console.error does not seem to work!?

app.js
var http = require("http");

var request = http.get("http://teamtreehouse.com/chalkers.json", function(response){
  console.log(response.statusCode);
});

request.on('error',  function(error){
  console.error('message');
});

still says You didn't call console.error in the error callback.

var http = require("http");

var request = http.get("http://teamtreehouse.com/chalkers.json", function(response){
  console.log(response.statusCode);
});

request.on('error', function(error){
  console.error(new Error("message")); 
});

I believe you have to pass in an error object.

console.error(new Error("stuffs on fire yo"));
