Israel -  CNN has sent an apology Tuesday night for mistakes in its coverage of Tuesday’s terror attack on a synagogue in Jerusalem.

“As CNN updated its reporting on the terrorist attack on the synagogue in Jerusalem earlier today, our coverage did not immediately reflect the fact that the two Palestinians killed were the attackers.  We erred and regret the mistake.”

Earlier today American CNN reporter Ben Wedeman’s story included the banner that read, “Israeli Gov’t Radio: Police shot, killed 2 Palestinians,” when the story was that the two Palestinians stormed a synagogue and killed four Jews and wounded eight others during morning prayer services.

So the question is: Is CNN Arab loving or Jew hating? Discuss.

This is UNACCEPTABLE!! Their constant biased reporting cannot be ignored any longer

The first comment is what they think the apology is only political.

Oh gee whiz--CNN apologized!!! too late, folks--now let's see if they fire Wederman--then we'll know that they are sorry. But truth be told CNN has told so many lies about Israel, this is just one more in their long list. #3--I don't think they are particularly Arab loving, but certainly Jew hating or more correctly Israel hating.

Of course CNN does not like the leftist President and always features good conservative spokes people

CNN is run by a Jew - Jeff Zucker. The largest individual shareholder is Aviv Nevo - an Israeli. Start writing to them.

I just went to CNN.com and looked all around
I did not see any apology! I dont know where the apology is but it should have been front page in huge letters and pinned just like the headlines with the "breaking news" they had on when they broadcast the "mistake"

I won''t be surprised when the world finds one day that CNN and BBC is really run by Qatar

There is only one way to respond. Identify the advertisers, call them about this, and promise to boycott their products and services unless they pull their ads from CNN. Money talks.

'Heartbroken'...how do you know that perhaps an Israeli Governmental member told them to do this (Right from PM Netanyahu) ? Don't forget...they all want a 'Palestinian State!'

Jerusalem mosque? It was a Jewish synagogue. Can't get the facts right

I have no idea what CNN is doing, one thing I know what we should be doing, is,, let CNN reporters know that if they come into Israel and Jerusalem they will leave in a box, block their camera's, harass the reporters, unplug their equipment and block their cars and TV trucks, jam their fax machines all over the world.

For those readers and left wingers thinking this is wild threat and action, NO, in the USA its call INCITING A RIOT, and CNN can't do it in our country, trace down the reporters, call them all night, flood their emails, get a hacker to publish weird news.

That's the only way they understand, to add, send dead mice and rats to their headquarters

Tell them, as I just did, that their station will never again be seen in your household. They crossed a line today.
