We complained to the Daily Mirror over an article in their print edition that provided an estimated number of Gaza civilians killed during recent violence, but omitted the fact that all four Israelis killed by Hamas and Islamic Jihad rockets were civilians.
We complained to Daily Mirror editors, arguing that readers were grossly misled by their decision to recycle a story from four years ago and published it as if it were current. After several emails to editors without a response, we complained to Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO) under the terms of the accuracy clause of the Editors’ Code.

A Daily Mirror article written by Siobhan McFadyen about a Palestinian stabbing attack today in Beitar Illit (that was captured on video) included the following opening sentence: Later, however, we’re told something else: So… A Palestinian […]
The fact that the British tabloid chose that particular image to illustrate the putative threats faced by British tourists visiting Israel once again demonstrates the willingness of editors to seize upon and exploit even the flimsiest evidence of alleged Israeli villainy.
Last year David Ward MP decided to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day by grossly debasing Holocaust memory. He published a post on his website which included the following passage: Having visited Auschwitz twice – once with […]
