CNN’s Christine Amanpour apologizes after wrongly claiming that rabbi’s family was killed in ‘shootout’ | Fox News

“On April 10, I referred to the murders of an Israeli family: Lucy, Maia and Rina Dee, the wife and daughters of Rabbi Leo Dee,” Amanpour said. “I misspoke and said they were killed in a ‘shootout’ instead of a shooting. I have written to Rabbi Leo Dee to apologize and make sure that he knows that we apologize for any further pain that may have caused him.” Amanpour’s retraction came after a 10-day campaign led by HonestReporting. The veteran journalist had originally contrasted the death of a young Palestinian boy with the deaths of Rabbi Leo Dee’s family. “We have a young 15-year-old Palestinian boy who’s been shot and killed by security — Israeli security forces. We also have the mother of two sisters, Israeli British sisters. They were killed in a shootout, and now the mother has died of her injuries,” Amanpour said on April 10, before she apologized.
