Reuters Corrects: High Court Live Streamed Proceedings

CAMERA’s Israel office yesterday prompted correction of Reuters captions which erroneously stated that a wide screen showing the live proceedings of Israel’s High Court considering petitions against the coalition agreement between Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Likud and Benny Gantz’s Blue and White party was “a placard with the photo of the High Court judges.”

The captions were:

AsHaaretzreported:
Two separate demonstrations were held against Netanyahu in Jerusalem on Sunday, one outside his official residence on Balfour Street, andone in the Wohl Rose Garden, across from the Knesset, where a wide screen was set up to show the discussions.
 
The scenes pictured above are in the Wohl Rose Garden.
In response to communication from CAMERA, editors commendably refiled the photos with the following corrected caption:
