Rav Ovadia Yosef lives in BBC profile of Israel’s political parties

An article originally titled “Lieberman cleared of corruption” – later amended to “Israel politician Lieberman cleared of corruption” – appeared very rapidly on the Middle East page of the BBC News website after news of the court’s verdict was made public on the morning of November 6th.

Accompanying that article were three additional items of suggested reading for visitors to the website: an obviously quickly updated profile of Avigdor Lieberman himself, a link to the BBC’s “Israel profile” and an item titled “Guide to Israel’s political parties”.

In their haste to get that article (which originally dates from January 2013) onto the webpage, BBC News editors had clearly not noticed that one of its entries is a month out of date, apparently forgetting that they themselves published an obituary for Rav Ovadia Yosef a month ago on the same Middle East page.
