After Correction, NYT Repeats Gender Segregation Error
One month after the New York Times published a correction making clear that there is no coerced gender segregation on bus lines in ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods in Israel, the Times' Web site carries a Reuters article containing the identical error.
The May 11 (in print) correction about gender segregation, prompted by CAMERA staff, states:
The Reuters story, by Allyn Fisher-Ilan, entitled "Barbra Streisand raps Orthodox Jews' actions against Israeli women," errs:
A public bus system operating in some Israeli cities forces gender segregation in deference to ultra-Orthodox rabbis who have long wielded political power in the Jewish state.
CAMERA has requested corrections from both media outlets. Stay tuned for an update.
