Sky Sports Corrects: Tel Aviv is Not Israel’s Capital

HonestReporting Success

The rocket attacks from Gaza have also affected the qualifying matches for European soccer’s Champions League. Maccabi Tel Aviv has switched its forthcoming match with Andorra’s Santa Coloma.


Unfortunately, Sky Sports‘ report on its website erroneously referred to Tel Aviv as “Israel’s capital.”


A quick email to Sky Sports from HonestReporting and the reference to the capital has been removed. Of course, this isn’t the first time that the media have designated Tel Aviv as Israel’s capital. And it’s not the first time that HonestReporting has made sure to correct the error.
