'Tis the Season: The CBS Christians Story Resurfaces
It's the Christmas season, which traditionally has been marked by false claims regarding the Israeli and Palestinian Christian communities. It's no surprise, then, that media outlets are now dusting off Bob Simon's April 2012 "60 Minutes" story falsely blaming Israel for the Christian exodus from Palestinian-controlled areas.
Not to detract from the holiday cheer, here's a reminder to all: That "60 Minutes" report was riddled with factual problems.

In addition to contacting the suggested officials, it would be useful to note the advertisers on 60 minutes, locate their CEOs and/or Presidents (easy to do via Yahoo Finance), and email/write them that you will not buy their products as long as they support...give them specifics on Bob Simon's lies.
Money talks. If enough people take the trouble to address the advertisers' bottom line, we may see Bob Simon relegated to the dustbin of (entertainment) history.
