CBC.ca Issues Clarification Following HRC Complaint

by Mike Fegelman

A February 20th CBC.ca report erroneously stated that the Turkish Ship known as the Mavi Marmara operated by ardent anti-Israel activists whose aim it was to break Israel’s legal naval blockade of Gaza was simply “delivering supplies to the Gaza Strip.”

CBC issued the following clarification and amended the online report following HonestReporting Canada’s complaint:

“Clarification: The Canadian Press reported in a story Feb. 19 that a ship boarded by Israeli soldiers last year was delivering supplies to the Gaza Strip. The story should have reported that the Israeli government says the ship, the Mavi Marmara, did not carry humanitarian aid but was part of a flotilla that did. This story has been edited to reflect this.”
