Earlier today, we tweeted a Guardian contributor, alerting her to an error in an otherwise unproblematic June 25th article about the increasing acceptance of film by ultra-orthodox communities: the false claim that the Israeli community of Yad Binyamin is a “settlement”.
Hi @1annejoseph, your article at @guardian on Haredim and film is interesting.
However, you get one detail wrong. Yad Binyamin is not a settlement, as you write in the sentence I attached below. It's witin pre-67 borders https://t.co/y1W7lXYQ6u pic.twitter.com/WeArzOGTWN

We then contacted Guardian editors, who upheld our complaint and amended the sentence to replace the word “settlement” with “community”.
