Have you seen a correction that the UN says Israel did NOT bomb a UN school?

Is your local media covering this story?
All the news outlets around the world jumped on the story when it was first released. It was sensational and anti Israel. now that the UN has investigated and found it false and local Palestinians have admitted that there was rocket fire coming from right outside the school compound in order to attract Israeli fire, most newspapers published a tiny correction on an inside page. Not my local paper, though. They have yet to correct the lies they spread. How about your local news outlets?

  • when did the story break? when does your paper go to press?
    sometimes it's just a matter of time and logistics, not everything is some vast conspiracy!

  • Surely you can't mean an American paper. They are so pro Israel it's crazy.

  • I just sent an email to my newspaper demanding that they cover the correction. I don't expect it to be a headline but the very least they can do is acknowledge that they were taken in by the palestinians and their friends at the UN. I will also contact our local TV.
    I urge you to do the same.
