UKMW prompts Daily Mail correction to claim ‘Israel attacks Palestinian civilians’.

UK Media Watch

An April 3rd article at the Daily Mail, focusing on an alleged spotting of Banksy in Israel, included this passage purporting to provide context on the political nature of the elusive, radical left street artist’s work:

 As we argued in an email to Daily Mail editors, this is a classic case of blurring news with opinion, suggesting that it’s an uncontroversial fact that Israel (intentionally) attacks Palestinian civilians, rather than the highly contested opinion of some.
Editors agreed, and revised the passage, which now omits any mention of Israel.

We commend Daily Mail editors for the prompt correction.
