UK Media Watch prompts Guardian correction to claim Tel Aviv is Israeli capital

not tel aviv

This morning, we contacted Guardian editors and argued that the passage falsely suggests that Tel Aviv is Israel’s capital. We noted that, in 2012, the Guardian was forced to acknowledge that it is wrong to state that Tel Aviv is Israel’s capital, and that their style guide was updated to note that – regardless of the international community’s views on the status of the city – Jerusalem is the seat of government.

Times of London again suggests that Tel Aviv is Israel’s capital (Update)

Times tel aviv (1)

In 2014, we prompted a correction to a Times of London print article that falsely claimed Tel Aviv was Israel’s capital – an error that other news outlets, including the Guardian have been forced to correct over the years. Today, we noticed that Times of London made a similar error in an article on Turkey’s recent reconciliation with Israel (Isolated Turkey mends ties with Russia, Israel and perhaps Egypt, June 28th.)
