On 15 October the Mail Online published an article claiming that leading figures in Jewish Voice for Labour (JVL) had been “disciplined for racism” by the Labour Party.
Those claims were entirely false and the Mail has now been forced into a humiliating climbdown after the JVL colleagues took legal advice:
So completely false were the claims that the original article appears to have been removed entirely, as a search for ‘Jewish Voice for Labour’ returns no link to it.
Jake Wallis Simons, the author of the piece, was contacted but declined to comment. Last year, Simons authored another Mail article that included false claims about the SKWAWKBOX’s editor, which the paper corrected after a complaint.
Sadly, of course, corrections in the ‘MSM’ are never as prominent as the fake news they are correcting.
