CanWest Changing Stories
In particular, CanWest is accused of making gross alterations to stories about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict and the War in Iraq. CanWest consistantly belittles the Palestinian cause, ignores any rationale for Palestinian resistance and worse. CanWest makes any neccessary changes to Reuters articles in order for them to fit with the organization's ideology.
As an example, Schlesinger cited a recent Reuters story, in which the original copy read: "...the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, which has been involved in a four-year-old revolt against Israeli occupation in Gaza and the West Bank."
In the National Post version of the story, printed Tuesday, it became: "...the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, a terrorist group that has been involved in a four-year-old campaign of violence against Israel."
All around Toronto, National Post paper boxes have been covered with the words "anti-Palestinian Propoganda". It would seem our nere-do-well preacher is correct.
