Zero0000 makes this claim regularly.
He does not provide examples to back up the claim.
Every one and every news source makes errors. Some
(such as the New York Times) publish those corrections

Please note that Zero0000 does not dispute the content
of Yisacharov's (sp?) interview saying that Hamas
increased its suicide bombings in response to the
Pilot's Letter. He does not dispute the interview on
Israeli TV with Yisacharov. His only objection
appears to be that the citation refers to the INN
I dont know how to create a citation that everyone can
verify (click a hyperlink) to a television interview
or radio broadcast. Sometimes TV or radio programs are
available on the web....mostly not.
