Dear Editors – Please recognize that you have a global audience. Think about the impact that your stories will have not only on a domestic readership but also beyond Israel.
Thanks to you – our subscribers – taking action, the BBC has apologized for publishing the false dog story.
What does this dog on the Israeli-Gaza border have to do with a false story of dog sentenced to death by a Jewish rabbinical court?
Absolutely nothing – unless you are AFP.
When will the BBC be big enough to admit when it has committed an error instead of wriggling out of an outright retraction?
A bizarre and untrue story originating in the Israeli press concerning a dog “sentenced to death by stoning” is picked up by the international media.
