BBC Clarifies: Netanyahu Has Called Abbas Peace Partner

After CAMERA and its affiliate BBC Watch highlighted a falsehood in Lyse Doucet's interview of Shimon Peres, and after a reader filed a complaint with the BBC, the broadcaster appended a correction to their Web site.
The error, which was broadcast on BBC World Service's Newshour on Aug. 2, 2013, and correction follow. See more details here and here.
Error (BBC World Service, Newshour, Lyse Doucet, 8/2/13): "And yet we’ve never heard Mr. Netanyahu describe [Mahmoud Abbas] as a partner for peace.”

Correction (Clarification appended to Web site): "Clarification: In this interview we gave the impression that Mr Netanyahu has not called Mr Abbas a ‘partner for peace’ when he has done so previously."
