UK Media Watch prompts Indy correction – The Temple Mount is back in Jerusalem

UK Media Watch

We recentlyposted about a Sept. 12th article highlighting photos of Muslims celebrating the festival of Eid al-Adha published at Indy100 (a brand of The Independent) which placed the Dome of the Rock, located on the Temple Mount (Judaism’s holiest site), in “Palestine”.

We complained to Indy editors, arguing that it’s inaccurate to claim that the Temple Mount is located in “Palestine” (a country that doesn’t exist), and noting that articles on the same topic at The Independent typically describe holy sites atop the Temple Mount (more neutrally) as located in “Jerusalem” or “the Old City in Jerusalem”. 

They upheld our complaint, and revised heading accordingly:
