British newspaper The Guardian has changed a picture of an Air China cargo plane that was wrongly used in its Monday report about engine parts dropping from a Longtail Aviation's Boeing 747 cargo plane in the Netherlands. The Chinese Embassy in the UK on Thursday said it noted the change but added that The Guardian has not yet apologized for the false information, urging the media outlet to learn from its misconduct.
The embassy urged The Guardian to abide by the professional ethics of journalism, discard arrogance and prejudice, and report on China and China's development in an objective, fair and balanced manner.
Air China on Wednesday demanded a formal public apology from The Guardian. It said its lawyers had sent a letter to the newspaper, pointing out that the Guardian's use of a picture of an Air China cargo plane in its report on an accident of a Longtail Aviation's plane has caused a negative impact to the company's image.
However, The Guardian has not yet apologized for the false information and only left a note at the end of the report: "The image on this article was changed on 23 February 2021."
