CBC Report Elusive to the Truth

by Mike Fegelman

In an April 29 CBC.ca report about Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayaad’s "statehood tactics" apparently "winning support" among West Bank Palestinians, CBC.ca erroneously claimed that:

"Statehood has proved elusive for the Palestinians, in part because Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has refused to endorse a two-state solution and has said established Jewish settlements must be allowed in areas like the West Bank to expand for natural growth of settler families."

Contrary to this statement, at a prime-time address delivered at Bar-Ilan University near Tel Aviv on June 14, 2009, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu endorsed the two-state solution, thereby supporting the creation of a Palestinian state.

After HonestReporting Canada brought this matter to the attention of senior producers at CBC.ca, the following correction was promptly issued: "An earlier version of this story said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has refused to endorse a two-state solution. In fact, Netanyahu has endorsed a two-state solution but with several conditions attached."
