Complainant Name:
Honest Reporting

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail


Simon Plosker, Managing Editor of Honest Reporting, complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had inaccurately reported the location of Israel's government, in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice. The complainant stated that Israel's government was based in Jerusalem, not Tel Aviv.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the amendment of the online article and a printed correction to read:

A report on 23 August mistakenly suggested that Israel's government was in Tel Aviv when it is, of course, in Jerusalem.
