CAMERA Prompts Washington Examiner Correction on ‘Palestine’

After contact from CAMERA, The Washington Examiner has changed inaccurate wording in a Feb. 10, 2017 dispatch.

That article, by reporter Anna Giaritelli, initially claimed: “Haley’s challenge of U.N. Secretary General Antonio Manuel de Oliveira Guterres was one of the harshest statements a U.S. official has made against Palestine in recent years[emphasis added].”

Yet, as CAMERA pointed out to Examiner editors, “Palestine” is not a country.

On February 22, the dispatch was commendably changed to read “Palestinian leadership.”
