Israel Matzav: NY Times admits: Ramat Shlomo is not a 'settlement'

NY Times admits: Ramat Shlomo is not a 'settlement'

CAMERA reports that the New York Times has corrected a caption that appears with this picture in the paper's April 15 edition:

Error (photo caption, 4/15/10): Ultra-Orthodox Jews last month in Ramat Shlomo, a Jewish settlement in the West Bank. (Amir Cohen/Reuters)

Correction (4/16/10):A picture caption on Thursday with the continuation of a news analysis article about a shift in the Obama administration's Middle East policy referred incorrectly to Ramat Shlomo, the name of a Jewish housing development that Israel says it is expanding despite objections by the United States and the Palestinian Authority. It is a neighborhood in East Jerusalem, not a settlement in the West Bank.
Nice job guys, but unfortunately, we need hundreds more like you. Here's another Reuters picture (different photographer, taken in March) whose caption refers to Ramat Shlomo as "a religious Jewish settlement in an area of the West Bank annexed to Jerusalem by Israel." I suspect this isn't the only other one out there.

And you thought Ramat Shlomo was in 'east' Jerusalem.

We have a major problem with this type of dripping propaganda that sinks into people's heads without them realizing it. Quite simply, we're outnumbered.
