  • Mar 17 2008: According to a City TV Producer: “Our editorial writer made an honest mistake in referring to an “Israeli annexation of Gaza” from Egypt in 67.

The information in question came to us from Reuters, one of our most trusted news sources. In this case, as your message suggests, it appears the information was not as precise as it should have been. I regret if this upset you or any members of your organization. I can assure you that we always strive for fair, balanced and accurate coverage. We always welcome the opportunity to have a one-on-one dialogue with our viewers. I can only express my regrets once again and assure you that no offense was intended. We thank you for bringing this fine detail to our attention. I have informed the City News International crew.
