UKMW prompts correction to inaccurate Times of London headline on settlers and Trump

Yesterday, we posted about an inaccurate headline accompanying a Jan. 1st Times of London article by Gregg Carlstrom.

We complained to Times of London editors (under the terms of the accuracy clause of the editors’ code), and today they responded by revising the headline to more accurately reflect the contents of the article.

Here’s the new headline:

Thanks to those who assisted us with this correction by heeding our call on Facebook to take action.
