UPDATES: UCI New University FINALLY Posts Reut Cohen (including corrections) - also, photo links recreated

As I mentioned in a previous post, the UCI New University newspaper had published in their dead-tree edition an error-ridden article claiming that Yossi Olmert was Ariel Sharon's brother. From what I heard, the article's author, Reut Cohen, had submitted an accurate article, but somebody on the newspaper staff had changed it. These are our future journalists of America? G-d save us all...

Anyway, the article never made it to the website until just before the weekend. Here it is, with the corrections added:

Prime Minister’s Brother Speaks About Israeli Politics

On another note, I've recreated the photo links that Flickr broke.



The NewU published a formal correction in the May 30, 2006 dead-tree issue (it's not on their website):

In last week's issue of the New University, the article "Ariel Sharon's Brother Speaks About Israeli Politics" incorrectly stated that Yossi Olmert is the brother of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. He is the brother of current Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. The mistake was made during the editing process and was not the fault of the article's author. In the article "MSU Provokes With 'Holocaust' Week," Imam Mohammad Al Asi was quoted as saying that "there are no differences between the rulers in Tel Aviv and the rulers of Israel." He actually said, "There are no differences between the rulers in Tel Aviv and the rulers in Riad." The Muslim Student Union did not allow any audio recordings of the event, so the article's author was unable to review quotes as per the usual practice.
