Our colleagues at HonestReporting Canada have published their latest communique. This past Friday August 12, Radio-Canada, the French-language network of CBC News, broadcast a game show featuring a question which shockingly presumed Jerusalem to be a city in “Palestine”.

On a game show called “Connivence”, Radio-Canada host Sébastien Benoit asked the following question to his contestants:

Radio-Canada Host Benoit: Which city in Palestine is known to be a place of pilgrimage for the Christians, Jews and Muslims?”

(Answer given by a contestant without hesitation): “Jerusalem!”

Radio-Canada Host Benoit: It is indeed Jerusalem!” (Audience applause)
