Toronto Star edits article to report the Palestinian death toll more precisely

On May 14, CJPME learned that the Toronto Star had edited a small error in their article following our complaint. In this article, Ben Cohen wrote that encampments are the latest events since Israel's war on Gaza "in which thousands have been killed." CJPME informed Ben Cohen that 35,000 Palestinians have been killed by Israel since Oct. 7, not "thousands." Given the fact that the obfuscating term "thousands" undermines the damage and casualties incurred since the beginning of Israel's military offensive on Gaza, Toronto Star has edited the problematic phrase to "tens of thousands." While CJPME will continue to insist that exact death tolls are reported, we nonetheless appreciate Ben Cohen's responsiveness and his willingness to amend the article.
