UK Media Watch prompts correction to Daily Mirror omission on Israeli casualties

Last week, we complained to the Daily Mirror over an article in their May 7th print edition on the recent violence between Israel and terrorists in Gaza.  The piece provided an estimated number of Gaza civilians killed during the short conflict, but omitted the fact that all four Israelis killed by Hamas and Islamic Jihad rockets were civilians.

DEADLY violence on the border of Israel and the Gaza Strip has petered out after Egypt and the United Nations reportedly mediated a ceasefire yesterday. Twenty-one Palestinians, more than half of them civilians, and four Israelis have been killed in three days of clashes.  

Shortly after contacting editors, our complaint was upheld, and the following correction appeared in the May 8th print edition.

The answers environmentalists give when interviewed are often disturbing, and usually with racist overtones. But, somehow, they are continuously supported and conduct activities that force people to remain in poverty. The makers of Mine Your Own Business ask local people about their lives and what they want for themselves and their future.

UK Media Watch prompts Guardian to admit that Palestinians triggered latest conflict

An article by the Guardian’s former Mid-East editor Ian Black included the claim that the latest round of violence between Israel and terrorists in Gaza was triggered by the Israeli shooting of Palestinian protesters on Friday.

“The immediate trigger for this round of violence was the now routine shooting of Palestinians on the border with Israel…”

However, as we noted in a May 8th post responding to the claim by Black, every British media outlet we reviewed – including the Guardian’s own Jerusalem correspondent – was clear in their coverage that the mini-war was started by the shooting of an Israeli soldier by an Islamic Jihad terrorist in Gaza.

We contacted the Guardian’s readers’ editor, who upheld our complaint and amended the article accordingly.

It now reads:

“The immediate trigger for this round of violence was the wounding of two Israeli soldiers on the Gaza border…”

The following addendum now appears…
