Belleville Intelligencer Publishes Correction After HRC Complaint

by Mike Fegelman

Yesterday’s edition of the Belleville Intelligencer featured a front-page report which falsely claimed that: "The Turkish Freedom Flotilla, which set sail for Gaza in May last year, proposing as well to deliver humanitarian aid, ended with 14 people on the ship dying as Israeli commandos intercepted the small fleet."

Of course, only 9 people were killed in an altercation between pro-Hamas activists and Israeli Defense Forces soldiers.

HonestReporting Canada communicated this information to senior editors at the Intelligencer who today commendibly issued the following correction notice on page A2:

Correction: "A story in the July 5 edition of The Intelligencer "No passage out of Crete" contained a error. The Turkish Freedom Flotilla, which set sail for Gaza in May last year, proposing to deliver humanitarian aid, ended with nine people on the ship dying as Israeli commandos intercepted the small fleet. The Intelligencer regrets the error."
