Tsk, tsk… Honest Reporting Canada has outed CBC’s Derek Stoffel and Heather Hiscox for running a story about Obama posters being vandalized in Jerusalem:
On March 20 at 6:00am (EST), CBC News Network broadcast a tape-talk with anchor Heather Hiscox and Mideast correspondent Derek Stoffel. In introducing this segment, Ms. Hiscox incorrectly stated the following: “Get a load of that video from Jerusalem, you see Obama’s face spray-painted out…”
The CBC super stated: “No welcome mat for Obama?: Vandals deface signs along Jerusalem street”
In actuality, these posters were defaced by Palestinians in Ramallah in the West Bank and were not defaced by Israelis in Jerusalem as CBC has falsely reported. (see here)
Honest Reporting Canada has demanded CBC Editor-in-Chief Jennifer McGuire issue an on-air correction for this and reporter Sasa Petricic’s claim that Israeli PM Netanyahu has “avoided negotiations with the Palestinians…”.
I will update if and when this happens.
