To err is human - to acknowledge your mistake is excellent professional conduct!
We warmly welcome the initiative taken by Trumpet.com in withdrawing their article about figurines of Hitler having arrived in Ukrainian shops.
They state clearly: “The Trumpet.com has withdrawn an article titled “Adolf Hitler Arrives in Ukraine Shops.” The source material that the article was based on was both inaccurate and misleading”.
The full statement can be found here: http://www.thetrumpet.com/index.php?q=5109.3384.0.0
We will certainly be continuing to insist on apologies and unequivocal statements from all those media outlets who repeated unverified, inaccurate and quite misleading information.
This is a cheering example where a website has taken the initiative.
We look forward to similar steps from the BBC, the UK newspapers Daily Telegraph and Daily Mail, Deutsche Welle, and all those who repeated reports posted there.
We very much hope that lessons will be learned and sources checked in future to avoid seriously jeopardizing our confidence in media objectively and honesty and misleading the public.
