New Action Alert: "Globe Leaves Facts Behind"

By Mike Fegelman

July 26, 2006

22_2The latest HonestReporting Canada action alert has just been published: Globe and Mail Reporter Leaves the Facts Behind.

Reporting from the Hezbollah stronghold of Tyre in south Lebanon, the Globe and Mail‘s Mark MacKinnon quoted a Red Cross worker, a mortician, a medical student and a motorcyclist who collectively implied that Israel intentionally targets civilians. Some of the claims MacKinnon printed include:

"’Israel has failed on the ground, so they’re hitting civilians.’"

"Of the dead he’s seen, Mr. Shadi says, ‘maybe 3 per cent’ were men. The rest were women and children. ‘They’re not targeting fighters.’"

"They’re just hitting civilians. I don’t think there’s a reason for it."
