CAMERA Prompts LA Times Correction on West Bank Palestinians


A March 11 news article in the Los Angeles Times had grossly inflated the number of Palestinians living in the West Bank. CAMERA staff prompted the following correction:
 
Error (Los Angeles Times, Laura King, 3/11/06): An estimated 3.2 million Palestinians live in the West Bank.

Correction (3/27/06): West Bank: An article in the March 11 Section A incorrectly reported the Palestinian population of the West Bank as 3.2 million. The population numbers are heavily disputed, but the most generally accepted estimate is 2.3 million.
