CAMERA's Israel office has prompted multiple media outlets, including Agence France Presse, Flash 90 (an Israeli photo service), and Times of Israel, to amend captions which had falsely characterized serial arsonists from Gaza as "activists."
Reuters captions early this week about the devastation in southern Israel caused by Palestinian "kite terror" ignored the fires' cause. In response to CAMERA's communication, subsequent captions note "Palestinians have been causing blazes by flying kites and balloons loaded with flammable materials."
Time relies on an editorial intern to explain how the Gaza Strip became the center of conflict. Ciara Nugent initially ignored that Israel had full withdrawn from the territory in 2005, one of the article's many failings.
The newspaper originally suggested that she had died from inhaling tear gas fired by Israeli troops.
An Associated Press article yesterday stated that vandals destroyed the fuel terminal at Israel's only cargo crossing into Gaza, initially leaving out that the culprits were Gazans, reportedly acting on Hamas instructions. AP responds positively to CAMERA's request to identify those responsible as Palestinian.
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.
CAMERA prompts correction of a Times of Israel article which, due to a mistranslation, erroneously stated that a Bet Hanoun home hit by a Gaza rocket belongs to an Egyptian family.
CAMERA prompts correction of a Deutsche Presse Agentur (DPA) photo caption which significantly overstated the Gaza Strip's population as "around three million." The correct figure is less than two million.
CAMERA prompts correction to an NBC article which referred to the "ongoing occupation" of the Gaza Strip. In 2005, Israel withdrew every last Israeli soldier and civilian from the Gaza Strip.
In response to communication from CAMERA, AP amends an article which overstated Gaza's unemployment rate as "nearly 50 percent." The figure is closer to 40 percent.
