Good, Bad, and Ugly
Reader reaction to Reuters news
Your correspondent reporting on the Mapuche indigenous people’s protest in Chile, pronounced their name incorrectly at least 2 times during the video.
She said Machupe instead of Mapuche, a big difference.
This was disrespectful to the Mapuche people. Please have your reporters familiarize themselves with the subjects of their stories.
We pulled the piece with the mispronunciation and replaced it with a new narration: GBU Editor
I have a complaint about profane pictures.
We appreciate if the site continues to stay clean. Now we have started noticing that it displays pictures of Victoria’s Secret fashion show, or video on a beheaded Mexican blogger.
Please refrain from making your site sensational, and continue to keep it neat and elegant by placing visuals with more discretion.
You mean HALTS, not ” haults ” !
This opens you up to ridicule…….for shame Reuters !
Yes, we fixed it, but not before people noticed the mistake: GBU Editor

I’m the father of Alexandra Peltre, who survived the attack on Utoeya, Norway. The information given by the journalist in this report is not correct!
Your article is incorrect regarding the inventors of hot air ballooning.
There were NO Gondolfier brothers!
Indeed. We fixed the reference to recognize the Montgolfier brothers: GBU Editor
“The Netherlands and Spain will square off Sunday for the World Cup final, the first ever for both sides.”
On Mani the parrot, who predicts the Netherlands will win the World Cup, your reporter mistakenly, in her voiceover, says this is the first time for each Spain and the Netherlands to be in the World Cup final. That is incorrect. The Netherlands has been in two previous final games.
A June 6 Reuters video report said that “U.S. Marines and Iraq” were working together in Basra.
However, the U.S. military members WERE U.S. NAVY RIVERINES, NOT MARINES. As the PAO for the Little Creek, Virginia-based Riverine squadrons, I’m requesting a correction be made to give these men the credit they deserve.
