Reuters finally gets it right!
Earlier this afternoon, Reuters corrected yesterday’s correction of its original February 14 article concerning FIDE and UBS. It should not have taken this long for all of this to happen.
”This version of the Feb. 15 story corrects to make clear that the federation said UBS bank had announced that the federation’s accounts would be immediately closed rather than frozen.”
Getting Reuters to print these corrections is important for Kirsan Ilyumzhinov because of the prestige of Reuters in MSM. Many other MSM outlets simply copy Reuters’ material and do not check independently for veracity or accuracy. Now it rests to be seen what other of the MSM who also got the story all wrong will follow suit and print corrections.
