UPDATE: Ha'aretz Corrects Silwan Error

After communication with CAMERA's Israel staff, Ha'aretz today corrects yesterday's falsehood about Palestinians in Silwan (noted also yesterday in Snapshots) . CAMERA applauds Ha'aretz for this nearly unprecedented display of journalistic accountability!

Whatever their many mistakes and faults, I'm sure staff members at Ha'aretz would be more open to CAMERA's criticisms if you didn't attempt to use a printed correction to rub salt in their wounds.

People who use your site know that Ha'aretz has some staff members who are in their own bubble, separate from the fullest responsibility of a good journalist. You're not gaining anything by trying to score points on the very occasions they have been self-critical. If they've take their egos out of the picture, you could show the same grace. It would probably gain CAMERA new readers in the long run.
