Jenin

by Mike Fegelman
  • CBC Radio: July 27, 2022: A clarification notice was added to an episode of the podcast Nothing is Foreign. The episode, which was published on May 20, 2022, mentions reports from Israeli media that the Israeli military was “not planning to investigate the killing of Shireen Abu Akleh.” Those reports specifically pertained to a criminal investigation.
  • August 4, 2022: Success! CBC Issues Statement Of Regret After Claiming Saudi Minister Said Israel “Murdered” Al Jazeera Journalist
  • May 31, 2022: HRC Prompts CTV To Correct False Claim That Palestinian Journalist Killed By Israeli Gunfire: “A clarification earlier this week. CTV News reported on a vigil here in Edmonton for a Palestinian journalist killed on the job. We reported that she was killed by Israeli forces, when in fact, it’s still in dispute as to who is responsible for her death. We sincerely regret this error.”
  • May 19, 2022:  An op-ed published in the Toronto Star claimed that Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh was “killed by an Israeli soldier… a sniper shot her in the neck… silenced by an Israeli sniper’s bullet.” However, it hasn’t been confirmed that IDF fire or a Palestinian terrorist’s bullet, killed the Palestinian journalist. The op-ed also wrongly claimed that Israel has killed 45 journalists since 2000.Following an HonestReporting Canada complaint, the Star corrected the op-ed and acknowledged that it’s wrong to definitively claim that Israeli soldiers killed this Palestinian journalist. The Star also removed the op-ed’s assigning responsibility of the deaths of 45 journalists to Israel, who were killed in crossfire or while on dangerous assignment.
  • May 16, 2022: HRC Prompts Hill Times Clarification After Reporter Falsely Claims Palestinian Journalist Killed By Israeli Gunfire.
  • May 13, 2022: PostMedia papers publish clarification after claiming Israel killed Al Jazeera journalist. Who killed Palestinian journalist unknown.
  • April 8, 2022: Subsequent to complaints sent to the CBC by HonestReporting Canada and our subscribers, we take note that CBC has amended its headline which now acknowledges that Israeli forces killed a “suspected attacker”. While the CBC chose to not identify the Palestinian terrorist as a terrorist, at the very least, this headline no longer misleads readers into thinking that Israeli forces killed a presumably innocent Palestinian civilian.
  • Toronto Star, Dec 4 2008: Reporter Oakland Ross stated “Jenin was the scene of an infamous Israeli military operation in 2002 that some recall as a massacre.” Public Editor stated “Jenin was not a massacre and therefore the Star’s article is incomplete and lacks context.”
