CAMERA prompts corrections at US News & World Report, Metro and Yahoo after the media outlets illustrate a story covering the burial of terror victim Yehuda Dimentman with a three-year-old photo from a Palestinian funeral. Euronews has yet to correct.
Multiple secondary media outlets publish an AP story accompanied by a headline that states as fact that "Israeli warplanes strike Syria, kill 4, including children," though the claim in Syria's state media is disputed and unverified.
