Reuters Corrects Captions: U.S. Embassy Not in Jerusalem
In a change from the usual journalistic misstep
in which media outlets frequently misidentify Tel Aviv
as Israel's capital, Reuters captions this week relocated the American embassy to Jerusalem. The U.S. embassy to Israel is in Tel Aviv. The erroneous Sept. 24 captions had stated:
Israelis from Kurdish origin take part in a rally in support of the Kurdish referendum outside the American embassy in Jerusalem September 24, 2017.
Following communication from CAMERA's Israel office, Reuters corrected the captions, which now state that the demonstration took place outside the American consulate in Jerusalem.
