In response to Tweets from WhiggedOut and CAMERA, The Jerusalem Post quickly amended the headline. The accurate headline now is “Government in Recruiting Drive Ahead of Mass Deportation of African Asylum Seekers.”
Contrary to common journalistic practice, The Jerusalem Post did not append a correction alerting readers to the change.
