Israel National News, April 16, 2015:

Nearly three decades after it was established, CNN has “discovered” the town of Mevo Horon – and declared it an “illegal settlement.”

Calling the CNN offices in Jerusalem, Tiar was greeted pleasantly, but quickly got to the point, asking a supervisor if they did not do any fact checking before broadcasting their stories. “How can you say that Mevo Horon is a new settlement? I myself have been living here for 32 years!”

The apparently unfazed person on the other end of the line did not deny that there had been an error – and tried to tell her that she was wrong about the dates herself. “He asked me if I was sure that the town had been here for three decades – perhaps it was newer? Maybe it was established in 1988? For me it was clearly just another example of how much the media can be relied upon to tell an accurate story,” Tiar added.

CNN could not be reached for comment.
