UPDATE: The SABC has REPLACED the image! Good job to everyone who contacted them.
Here is their response:
The SABC received a number of complaints about the image accompanying a report headlined "Israel making inroads in halting African migration", published on 24 August on the SABC News website. The picture accompanied a report supplied by a respected news agency and which was published by many media outlets around the world.
While we stand by the report, the SABC removed the image in response to the complaints received.
Now -- this horrible anti-Semitic picture should never be used by any news organization and should be removed from the Reuters catalog. You can contact them here:
A disgusting anti-Semitic caricature gets passed off as news by the South Africa Broadcast Corporation.
HonestReporting: How an anti-Semitic Picture Made the News
Hi this is Yarden Frankl from HonestReporting's Jerusalem office.
The South Africa Broadcast Corporation ran a story about Israeli attempts to curb
illegal immigration from Africa.
So what picture did they use that they thought would best illustrate this story
about immigration? Check out their website: http://tinyurl.com/9m6x3bm
Take a closer look at that outrageous picture.
It's shocking. It has nothing to do with the story. But what's even more
disgusting is this is an old photograph that we have seen before.
We saw this picture used two years ago by the Washington Post. Here is the picture
from a 2010 Washington Post photo gallery.
Is it a picture of a news event of simply anti-Semitism?
So where did this photo originally come from?
It's a Reuters photo taken from two years ago and the Reuters caption is that it's
an activist at a protest rally.
Here's the original picture from the Reuters website and here's the caption.
But this isn't a news photo.
This is simply an anti-Semitic caricature with an anti-Israel slogan thrown on top
of it. That is now being used over the last two years by the media.
If you are outraged that a news organization would use this picture, do something
Contact the SABC at: http://www.sabc.co.za/wps/portal/SABC...
Demand that they remove this picture and apologize for publishing it.
