Not Your Typical Bad CNN Report

I won’t be quoting the article itself this time. It’s irrelevant and frankly quite a bore, just Ehud Barak postulating some “what-ifs”, in light of the Israeli election result.

I will, however, quote the editor’s note:

Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story contained an incorrect quote from Ehud Barak.

Talking about whether the outcome of coalition negotiations would affect Israel’s position on Iran’s nuclear program, the story incorrectly quoted Barak as saying: “The capacity of Israel to take the lead, even kind of independently, is something that has never been even contemplated, and should not be.”

Barak actually said: “The capacity of Israel to act if necessary, even kind of independently, is something that has never been removed from the table and should not be removed from the table.”

Leave it to the CNN clowns to interview Barak, and then proceed to misquote him in print, giving the reader a completely opposite narrative.
