Besides the data, why do I do that?
The BBC made the following claim: "Palestinians and Israeli troops have clashed recently in the West Bank, but attacks on settlers there are rare." This is a flat out lie.
With special thanks for BBC Watch’s research, we prompted the Canadian Broadcast Corporation to issue an on-air correction after CBC falsely claimed that no Israeli settlers had been attacked by Palestinians in the past two years. Here is our release:
