Edmonton Journal Edits CP Wire Report

January 19, 2007

Edmontonjournal_1  We were surprised to notice some subtle changes that editors at the Edmonton Journal made to a Canadian Press wire report on the OSSTF’s anti-Israel motion.

According to the original CP report as picked up by the Windsor Star, CBC.ca, Globe & Mail, Montreal Gazette, and the Chronicle Herald:

"The motion put forward by Jason Kunin, an English teacher and Jewish activist who has frequently criticized Israeli government policies, and Hyssam Hulays, a computer science teacher, decries "Israel’s continued violation of the human rights of Palestinians."

Meanwhile, Edmonton Journal editors changed their CP report to state the following:

?The motion put forward by Jason Kunin, an English teacher and activist who has frequently criticized the Israeli government, and Hyssam Hulays, a computer science teacher, accused Israel of "continued violation of the human rights of Palestinians."

Were these substantial edits?  Let us know your thoughts.
