CAMERA Prompts USA Today Correction on 1967 Lines

CAMERA staff elicited a correction on a USA Today news article which incorrectly identified the location of the 1967 armistice line. The error and correction follow:

Error (USA Today, 5/23/11): Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had rejected the idea of basing Israel’s western border on the armistice lines that have existed since the end of the Six-Day War in 1967, and have yet to be resolved.

Correction (5/27/11): A story Monday on President Obama’s speech on Israel-Palestinian peace talks misstated the location of the armistice line between Israel and the West Bank. It is along eastern Israel.

CAMERA commends USA Today for its prompt correction.
