MSNBC apologizes for showing inaccurate maps of Israel

(JTA) – MSNBC apologized for using “not factually accurate” maps in a segment discussing the violence that has erupted across Israel in recent weeks.

“MSNBC Live” host Kate Snow acknowledged her show incorrectly displayed maps describing presentday Israel as a Palestinian state in 1946, when the area was under British mandate rule and the West Bank and Gaza as controlled by the Palestinians from 1949 to 1967, when the regions were actually controlled by Jordan and Egypt, respectively.

“In an attempt to talk about the context for the current turmoil in the Middle East, we showed a series of maps of the changing geography in that region,” Snow said. “We realized after we went off the air the maps were not factually accurate and we regret using them.”
