CBC News Morning

  • March 28, 2013: On-air correction: “Last week on our program we showed video of defaced posters of U.S. President Barack Obama and we told you those images were in Jerusalem. We made an error in saying that. The video in fact was from Ramallah. We regret that error.”
  • Jan 17 2008: Apology – According to a senior editor at CBC: “On November 28, you wrote concerning a report by CBC correspondent Nahlah Ayed on the November 27 edition of CBC NEWS: MORNING. Ms. Ayed said, “erroneously,” you wrote, “In a couple of days, it’s going to be the 60th anniversary of the UN vote to partition what is now Israel into two states for the Palestinians and the Israelis.” In fact, you wrote, the Partition plan called for two states: one for Arabs and one for Jews, not one for Palestinians and one for Israelis. Of course, you are right. The November 29, 1947, United Nations General Assembly vote on the Partition Plan for Palestine would have divided the British Mandate territory into Jewish and Arab states (plus an area under international control).”
