The New Statesman, a British political weekly magazine whose self-declared aim is to promote socialist ideas "among the educated and influential classes," is allowing its pages to be used as a platform for anti-Israel propaganda, replete with outright falsehoods.
The following letter was published in the August 1, 2005 edition of the New Statesman. The magazine would not publish a formal correction to the factual error addressed in the letter. An editor told CAMERA that the magazine's policy is to publish letters instead of corrections to rectify errors. But according to a news database, the magazine publishes a fair number of corrections.
