Fighting Fake News: Spiegel, AFP Forced to Correct After Breitbart London Points Out Major Inaccuracies

Recommended Posts

German magazine Der Spiegel and the AFP have been forced to correct a story that claimed 15 Identitarians had been arrested in Paris after Breitbart London pointed out those arrested were far-left extremists, both publications alleging they had been victims of a ‘translation error’.

French centre-left newspaper Libération published an article Tuesday examining who had been arrested by French police in Paris over the weekend citing specifically that Breitbart London had correctly reported that 14 of those arrested were far-left extremists.

The paper also confirmed that Der Spiegel and Austrian newspaper Der Standard had made the false claim that all 15 arrested were members of the hipster-right Identitarian youth movement, forcing Der Spiegel to correct their former claim.


I love it when they are forced to fix inaccuracies.... Makes them squirm :D
