Since Reuters has failed to respond to my first enquiry – see previous post – I have sent the following repeat request for a link to the source material:
Please read my previous 2 posts on this site, if you have not done so already, to fully understand the implications of this issue.
This is a matter of considerable importance. Reuters is a global news agencuy widely used by media internationally. Its impartiality as a news source has been questioned previously. For example a Reuters photographer “doctored” a photograph of an Israeli bombing raaid during the 2006 Israel-Lebanon war to make the damage seem worse than it was. To my knowledege this resulted in his dismissal. Their impartiality was also seriously questioned in a recent peer-revviewed academic paper
authored by Henry Silverman.
If the Reuters report on Israeli torture of Palestinian children has elements of fraud, it is vital that this be exposed and widely publicised. Even if fraud is absent, the Report is appallingly poor and biased.
