Just Peace Advocates reached out to the Toronto Star Public Editor Bruce Campion-Smith, Bureau of Accuracy, to urge the Toronto Star to change the AP release of May 12 entitled “Palestinians mourn slain Al Jazeera journalist, blame Israel.”
Thanks for the note. I’ve taken a look at this article and reviewed other coverage. We did edit the headline to note that the network is blaming Israeli forces for the death.
Palestinians mourn slain Al Jazeera journalist; network says she was killed by Israeli forces”
The Star has indicated they will not update content of AP articles.
Just Peace Advocates urged The Star to run in depth article/s in regard to the killing of Shireen Abu Aqleh.
Since 2000, the Israeli military have murdered 48 journalists. Since the beginning of 2022, the Israeli military has killed 49 Palestinians with the occupied territory. The killing of Abu Akleh needs to be considered in this broader impunity.
