Article: U.N.: Lebanon force is active

Date: July 20, 2010

This article reported on a spokesperson for the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon saying "UNIFIL had found no evidence of weapons smuggling to the south since the 2006 war."

Omission. Misleading: This was a shoddy piece of reporting. The Israeli government has released photographic evidence proving there are massive amounts of weapons, including missiles, in that area. The article omits any reference, creating the blatantly false impression that the statements from the United Nations spokesperson are accurate.


Factual Accuracy: 5
