Yesterday The Los Angeles Times and Reuters both departed from their usual language which acknowledges that among the hundreds of thousands of Palestinians displaced in 1948, some fled and some were driven out. While Reuters has updated, The Times has yet to address its misleading passage which noted only those who were driven out, ignoring the majority who fled of their own accord, often at their leaders' behest.
As The Los Angeles Times promises truth, accuracy and quality journalism, CAMERA calls on editors to either substantiate or retract the dubious claim that the flow of water into Gaza is facing increasingly severe restrictions.
CAMERA prompts correction of a Los Angeles Times article which wrongly stated that the U.S. Embassy to Israel has always existed in Tel Aviv "along with the rest of the world's diplomatic missions." In fact, 16 countries once had embassies in Jerusalem and a number currently maintain consulate-generals in the city.
CAMERA prompts a series of corrections in The Los Angeles Times after articles this month grossly understated the number of trucks crossing into the Gaza Strip and also under-reported the area of Gaza's fishing zone.
In her Los Angeles Times article about a Strategic Affairs Ministry list of 20 pro-BDS organizations whose key activists will be denied entry into Israel, Noga Tarnopolsky errs regarding international and Israeli law, including the entry law in question.
CAMERA prompts correction of a Los Angeles Times article which upgraded Palestinian diplomat Husam Zomlot from envoy to ambassador.

A Los Angeles Times news article yesterday about deteriorating Jordanian-Israeli relations exclusively blames Israeli decisions "widely seen as an affront to Jordan's King," and completely ignores Jordanian actions "widely seen as an affront" to many Israelis.
In an editorial with a highly misleading headline ("No entry for Israel's critics"), The Los Angeles Times reported that Israel had turned away a Human Rights Watch researcher. After communication from CAMERA, The Times clarifies: Omar Shakir later received a one-year visa.
"Bedouins in the West Bank hold fast to their land as pressure builds for them to leave" is a Los Angeles Times headline for a 1600 word feature about Khan Al Ahmar which fails to report a key piece of information: when exactly they arrived on "their land" east of Jerusalem.
