The Bias of Meta’s Oversight Board

The Board’s questionable handling of the public engagement process over moderating the term "shaheed" does not inspire confidence that these issues are being fairly or fully considered. With upcoming Board recommendations on moderating the phrase “from the river to the sea” and how to handle the use of the term “Zionists” when compared to criminality, it is clear that the Board seeks to have an enormous influence on online expression relating to Israel and antisemitism. As antisemitism and anti-Israel extremism surge, this should be concerning to all.

CAMERA Op-Ed: The International Court of Justice Never Said That

In dozens of stories, AP committed one of the most egregious journalistic transgressions: misattributing a false quote to a source. Tamar Sternthal explains in Times of Israel how a bogus ICJ quote alleging “plausible risk of genocide” in Gaza found its way into AP reporting, and how CAMERA put an end to it.

NY Times Hires Another Anti-Israel Extremist to Cover Israel

To help with its coverage of Israel, the New York Times has hired: someone who had praised Hitler; someone who denied Hamas has murdered Israeli civilians; someone who has said her objectivity about Israel was out the window; and now, Bora Erden, another committed anti-Israel activist.

CAMERA Op-Ed: Is Hezbollah Using Beirut Airport?

A recent report cited unnamed sources who claimed that Hezbollah is using Beirut airport to store weapons. But as CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner there’s a long history of Hezbollah using ports of entry to store weapons.

CAMERA Op-Ed: Israel at a Crossroads

Israel, Michael Horowitz argues in his new book, is at a crossroads. The Jewish state faces a mounting threat from the Islamic Republic of Iran yet it also enjoys warming relations with many Arab nations. As CAMERA tells the Washington Free Beacon, Horowitz makes excellent points but also omits key context.

CAMERA Op-Ed: Al Jazeera on the Potomac

The Washington Post is bleeding money and losing subscribers at an astonishing rate. The Post is turning to new leaders, and new programs, to recoup their losses. But as CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner magazine, it is the newspaper's failure to abide by basic journalism standards that are the chief contributing factor.

CNN Article Breathes False Life into the Gaza “Famine” Lie

Is there an imminent famine in Gaza? How CNN has covered this story over the last four months is illuminating, but not in the sense of discovering the facts. Rather, CNN’s coverage illustrates how the network is leaving its audience both uninformed and misinformed.

Diplomatic Controversies and Lazy ‘Journalism’ at CNN

CNN authors found it sufficient to largely copy and paste from competing statements without adding any value. To call this lazy journalism isn’t entirely accurate, though. After all, we know that the network will work overtime to concoct bizarre “investigative” reporting riddled with holes, dubious claims, and thin evidence. The amount of effort devoted seems to depend on who the story makes look good or bad.

MSNBC Mislabels Northern Israeli Communities ‘Settlements’

On MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Keir Simmons erroneously referred to locations which Hezbollah targeted within internationally-recognized Israeli territory as "settlements." While MSNBC agreed the terminology was wrong, the network declined to broadcast a correction.

The University of Minnesota’s Cynical Holocaust Studies Hire

The University of Minnesota is set to hire, as its new director for the Center for Holocaust & Genocide Studies, an individual who would serve better as a case study on the persistence of genocidal antisemitism than as credible researcher of it.

CAMERA Op-Ed: The Rise of Anti-Zionist Networks in the U.S.

A recent New York Post report noted the anti-Israel activism of Theodore Roosevelt's great-great-great grandson. But as CAMERA tells the Algemeiner, it's all in the family. Roosevelt's grandchildren, both CIA officers, helped establish anti-Zionist networks in the U.S., and they used government funds to do so.

Arrested Truth: UPI Cites As Fact Disputed Figures For West Bank Arrests

UPI reports as fact a Palestinian organization's dubious claim that nearly 9000 West Bank Palestinians have been arrested since Oct. 7, ignoring Israel's figure of less than half that number. Once again, McClatchy pulls Adam Schrader's deeply flawed article from all of its sites.

CNN’s Advocacy Journalism

CNN appears to be advocating for a further US arms embargo on Israel in a pair of articles masquerading as journalism.

NY Times Misleads on Rafah Crossing and Rafah Ruling

Israel shut down the Rafah crossing between the Gaza Strip and Egypt. So said the New York Times. No one of consequence denies the World Court called for an end to Israeli military operations in Rafah. So argued the New York Times. In both cases, the news was false — as reporting even in the New York Times would eventually make clear.

CAMERA Op-Ed: The United Nations Helps Hamas

The United Nations is a key component in Hamas's war to destroy the Jewish state. And as CAMERA tells the Washington Times, the UN provides cover for the terrorist group. The press should not grant the UN undue credibility.

Al Hurra Clarifies About Hamas’ False Claim To Accept Ceasefire

After Al Hurra repeatedly reported as fact Hamas' claim that it accepted a ceasefire proposal, CAMERA prompts the publicly-funded American Arabic-language network to add the State Department's unequivocal response: "Hamas did not accept a ceasefire proposal."

The Washington Post Makes Hamas Claims Appear and Disappear

The Washington Post continues to uncritically regurgitate claims from Hamas, a U.S.-designated terrorist group. This has led to numerous embarrassing moments. Recently, the newspaper chose to delete an entire story that was entirely based on Hamas sources

Times of Israel Corrects AP’s Tel Aviv Metonym for Israel

UPDATE: In response to communication from CAMERA, both TIME and Times of Israel correct Associated Press copy which erroneously cited Tel Aviv as shorthand for Israel. Both media outlets now correctly refer to Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Fifty-Two UN “Experts” and Seven Major Lies

Fifty-two UN experts either didn’t bother to fact check their own statement or had no qualms about spreading lies about the Jewish state in order to accuse it of all manner of evils.

‘Gaza Strikes Back’: UPI Hits Rock Bottom

"Gaza strikes back at Israel after enduring months of war" was the United Press International headline whose relationship to reality mirrors that of George Lucas' "The Empire Strikes Back" science fiction favorite.
A chart comparing civilian deaths during the 2003 invasion of and the start of the 2023 Gaza war shows a higher rate in Iraq.

Iraq 2003 and Gaza 2023

Journalists have often contrasted the fighting in Gaza with the American fighting in Iraq. They have often done so misleadingly. We take a closer look.

CAMERA Op-Ed: Raisi’s Death Won’t Change Much

As CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner, the recent death of Ebrahim Raisi, the president of Iran, in a helicopter crash won’t change much. In the Islamic Republic, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has the final say, and men like Raisi are but his servants. The regime and its ambitions—to destroy Israel and remove the U.S. from the Middle East—will live on.

AP Mum on Egypt’s Closure of Crossing, Faulting Israel For Rafah Food Shortages

AP conceals that Egypt refuses to coordinate with Israel on the transfer of aid, thereby preventing the passage of food through Rafah crossing into the Gaza Strip. By falsely holding Israel responsible for the reported food shortage, AP piles on to the tampered evidence upon which the ICC has built its whole rotten case.

The Washington Post Reanimates Antisemitism

The Washington Post is gaining quite the reputation. Once known for bringing down Presidents, the newspaper has been reduced to repeating Muslim Brotherhood-talking points.

NPR Promotes Palestinian Myths to Delegitimize the Jewish State

A segment of "Here & Now," produced by NPR affiliate WBUR was devoted entirely to promoting the concept of “Nakba”—  “catastrophe”— to describe the establishment of the modern State of Israel. With both host and guest promoting Palestinian foundational myths to delegitimize the Jewish state, the segment sounded more like propaganda on Voice of Al Aqsa, a Hamas radio station, than a report from a U.S. public radio network that claims to adhere to journalistic norms.

ICC Prosecutor Seeks to Effectively Rob Israel of its Legitimate Right to Self-Defense

Military experts have attested that Israel is taking every possible step to avoid harm to civilians, while conducting a legitimate and necessary war of self-defense. To characterize this as “extermination” or “murder,” and to use it to justify international legal action against Israel's leaders, is to twist morality on its head.

Hamas Flag Shows Up On NYC Street, But Not in AFP Caption

UPDATE: CAMERA prompts corrections of AFP and Getty photograph captions which whitewashed a New York City demonstrator waving a Hamas flag and sporting a Hamas headband as a "[p]ro-Palestinian" demonstrator. The corrected captions make his Hamas affiliation clear.

CAMERA Op-Ed: Leaving Hamas in Rafah Saves the Terrorist Group

As CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner, Hamas can’t be eliminated unless the IDF launches an operation in Rafah. While some in the U.S. have questioned the wisdom of such a move, allowing Hamas to remain in Rafah effectively preserves the terrorist group.

CAMERA Op-Ed: Iran’s Unprecedented Attack on Israel

As CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner, Iran’s recent barrage of missiles and drones launched from Iranian soil is unprecedented. The attack marks a significant, and noteworthy, escalation by the Islamic Republic. Failing to respond would hurt Israel’s deterrence—and America’s.

CAMERA Op-Ed: Iran Wants to Destroy Israel

As CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner, Israel is not purely at war in Gaza against Hamas. Rather it is at war with the Iranian regime — a war in which Tehran struck a devastating blow.

CAMERA Op-Ed: Anti-Israel Ideology Tarnishes Brown University

Brown University's contribution to a growing trend of antisemitic views among young Americans is notable, not only for the extremist ideology promoted on campus by its Center for Middle East Studies but also because it aims to shape even younger minds through its Choices Program, a social-studies curriculum for high schoolers that includes units informed by the same radical ideology.

UPI Belatedly Acknowledges: Hamas Attacked Kerem Shalom Crossing

Two days after UPI’s Adam Schrader completely ignored that Hamas fired rockets towards Kerem Shalom even as he blamed Israel exclusively for the humanitarian crises facing Gazans, CAMERA prompts the news agency to cover the terror organization’s deadly attack on the crossing for the first time.

CAMERA Op-Ed: Brown University Sends a Message that Extremism Works

As American universities are aflame with extremism, antisemitism, and lawlessness, universities have only themselves to blame for the decades-long promotion of faculty members who abuse their role to indoctrinate students in “resistance”. By rewarding bad behavior over respectful dialogue, they are sowing the seeds of yet more chaos and lawlessness.

These News Outlets Spread the “Plausible Genocide” Libel

When the International Court of Justice issued an order on January 26 in the “genocide” case between South Africa and Israel, it soon became common knowledge that the ICJ had found it “plausible” that Israel was committing “genocide.” This common knowledge, however, was in fact a myth.

CNN Article Errs and Misleads on Gaza Humanitarian Aid

A CNN graphic, and the preceding text, suggests that the daily average number of trucks bringing food into Gaza now is less than half of what it was before October 7. In fact, the truth is precisely the opposite. Substantially more trucks are bringing food into Gaza today than were a year ago.

Tucker Carlson’s assault on American Christian support for Israel

Under the guise of advocating for Palestinian Christians, Tucker Carlson launched a two-pronged assault on American Christian support for the Jewish State. To provide legitimacy for his campaign, he enlisted the help of Rev. Dr. Munther Isaac, a notorious propagandist for the Palestinian anti-Israel narrative.

CAMERA Op-Ed: What the Damascus Strike Tells Us

Israel allegedly struck a building next to a consulate in Damascus. The strike took out top operatives from Iran's IRGC. And as CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner, the strike tells us much about the current state of play in the Middle East.

CAMERA Op-Ed: CAMERA Highlights Evacuation of Israeli Civilians

Thousands of Israeli civilians have been evacuated since Hamas and other Iranian proxies initiated a genocidal war against the Jewish state. As CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner, the current situation is unsustainable and, to the north, a potential war with fellow proxy Hezbollah looms.

The Rape Deniers

Where there are anti-Jewish atrocities, there are deniers. And on Oct 7, there were atrocities. Countless acts of murder and mutilation — and brutal acts of sexual violence by the Palestinian attackers. Cue the deniers and their manipulations.

CAMERA Op-Ed: Gaza, the Day After

Militarily, Israel's war against Hamas and other Gaza-based proxies is going well. Indeed, the IDF has made remarkable gains. But diplomatically and politically, the post-war phase will present Israel with numerous challenges, as CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner.

CAMERA Op-Ed: The UN Vote to Save Hamas

Efforts are underway to save Hamas. Unsurprisingly, such efforts include the UN. Sadly, a recent US decision at the United Nations does more harm than good.

Buckle Up: NPR Takes Listeners For A Ride 30,000 Trucks Long

Truckers are accustomed to very long journeys, but what about a line of 30,000 vehicles waiting for months on end to pass inspections and cross a border? If that sounds like beyond the realm of reason, it's because it is. Introducing Jane Arraf's tall tale of the wide loads.

UPI Lies About U.N. Data, Promotes Blood Libel That Jewish Settlers Killed Nearly 200

UPI's Adam Schrader falsely reports that according to UN data, Israeli settlers are responsible for most of the 199 Palestinians killed in the West Bank from Jan. 1 to Oct. 6 of last year. In fact, UN data shows seven Palestinians were killed in incidents involving settlers. In virtually all of the cases, the Palestinian fatalities were perpetrators attacking Israelis.

The Media Aids Hamas

Israel has been assailed for not getting aid to Gazans. Policymakers have picked up on this narrative, pushed by the mainstream press. But as CAMERA notes, it is deeply misleading.

CAMERA Op-Ed: Hezbollah’s Control of Lebanon

The press has failed to fully note the extent to which Hezbollah controls Lebanon. Indeed, as CAMERA tells Providence Magazine, the Lebanese Armed Forces have been caught cooperating with the terror group. This bodes poorly for the next Israel-Hezbollah War.

CAMERA Op-Ed: Linking Israel’s 2014 War Against Hamas to Today

CAMERA reviews a new memoir by Ari Harow, Netanyahu's former chief of staff, for the Washington Free Beacon and finds that Israel's war against Hamas in the summer of 2014 foreshadowed tactics that the terrorist group would employ in its war on the Jewish state in 2023-24.

Foreign Affairs Gets Lost in the Middle East

Foreign Affairs magazine has an illustrious history. For more than a century, the publication has published groundbreaking essays that have define foreign policy debates in both Washington and the world. But the magazine's recent Middle East coverage is replete with omissions and anti-Israel bias.

CNN Reporting: Conflicts of Interest, A Missing Terrorist Organization, And an Inability to Verify

First, the article spills large amounts of ink to link Israel to tragedies, while omitting or glossing over the existence and responsibility of other parties. Second, the article employs a curious double standard as to informing readers of when the network was “unable to verify” details being reported. Third, the background of one of the journalists himself raises questions of a conflict of interest.

Tracing the Dubious Allegations of Sexual Violence Made Against Israeli Forces

The only source for the allegations of sexual violence by Israeli forces that several United Nations "experts" were willing to point to was a public report by an organization called Women's Centre for Legal Aid and Counseling (WCLAC). Given that this is all the public has to go on to scrutinize the allegations, it is worth examining WCLAC’s report.

Once Again, CNN Gives an Antisemite a Propaganda Platform

CNN bewilderingly decided to amplify an antisemite’s horrific allegations against the Jewish state, notwithstanding they lacked any supporting evidence, and without mentioning her extraordinary bias on the subject.

At UPI, Hang Glider Journalist Adam Schrader Shills For Hamas

Couch journalist Adam Schrader branches into a new speciality: hang glider journalism, or shilling for Hamas post-Oct. 7, 2023. Swooping in with great conviction and few facts, the international breaking news editor whitewashes and justifies Hamas' heinous atrocities.

CAMERA Op-Ed: The Washington Post Covers for UNRWA, Again

Compelling evidence has emerged indicating that UNRWA employees took part in the October 7 massacre. As CAMERA tells the Algemeiner, this is part of a long-standing pattern at the UN agency. The Washington Post, however, ignores the long history, and sordid mission, of UNRWA.

Another CNN Report on Gaza Based on Little Evidence, No Context, But Lots of Insinuation

As CAMERA has repeatedly documented, there is a pattern of CNN reports lobbing horrific allegations at Israel based on exceedingly thin evidence and lots of insinuation. It’s a standard, or practice, akin to tabloid journalism – a standard certainly not appropriate for serious journalism or serious accusations like that of war crimes.

NY Times Entombs Criticism of UNRWA

Buried 18 meters under a United Nations headquarters in the Gaza Strip is a Hamas tunnel and data center, Israeli army engineers announced on Saturday. That’s also how deep, in paragraphs, the New York Times buried news of the discovery.

CBS Falsely Reports U.S. Warned Israel Not To Attack Rafah

CBS's Deborah Patta falsely reported that Netanyahu "stubbornly refuses to listen" to his American interlocutors. But the Israeli Prime Minister's order to devise an evacuation plan for Rafah's civilians means that he listened very attentively. The U.S. exhorted Israel to prepare a solid plan to protect Rafah's civilians before carrying out a military operation. The Biden administration did not tell Israel not to attack Rafah.

The State of Palestinians: AP Errs on Oslo Accords, Strips Palestinians Of Agency

AP's Julia Frankel falsely reports that under the intermin peace deals, "the self-rule government was meant to expand and eventually run a future Palestinian state." In Frankel's telling, the still stateless Palestinians have no responsibility for their current state of affairs, including West Bank economic hardship born of Hamas' Oct. 7 atrocities.

CAMERA Op-Ed: UNRWA’s Problematic History

On October 7, UN employees helped perpetrate the largest massacre of Jewish civilians since the Holocaust. But as CAMERA tells the Washington Times this revelation is as unsurprising as it is infuriating. UNRWA is part of the problem, not the solution.

CAMERA Op-Ed: Does UNRWA Deserve a Role in Rebuilding Gaza?

Employees of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency took part in the October 7 massacre. This revelation came the day after the U.S. State Department suggested that UNRWA should play a role in rebuilding Gaza. But as CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner UNRWA should be persona non grata.

AFP Corrects On 1948 Palestinian Refugees

CAMERA prompts correction of an English-language AFP article which erroneously reported that all of the Palestinian refugees from 1948 were forcibly displaced from their homes. In fact, the vast majority fled, often at the urging of their own leaders.

The Hill Declining: Rising’s Jessica Burbank & The Peace-Loving Houthis

According to Jessica Burbank, the Houthis are peace activists targeting ships bringing weapons to Israel, some 23 percent of Gaza's young women have been sexually assaulted by IDF soldiers, Hamas doesn't operate in the West Bank and US intelligence agencies are wrong about Hamas' command center in Shifa hospital.

CAMERA’s Impact Upsets The Intercept

It's one part defense of Hamas, one part rant against CAMERA, and one part insinuation that an editor’s late father pulls the New York Times strings from beyond the grave. But thank you, The Intercept, for recognizing our successes.

MSNBC: Four Months of Disinformation

Common distortions include omitting the 2005 disengagement from Gaza and the subsequent election of a group sworn to Israel's destruction to power in the territory, promoting anti-Israel propagandists, and ignoring the numbers of casualties that are reported to be Hamas fighters. In addition, at least two commentators called on the US to force Israel essentially to surrender.

Media Outlets Correct Yoav Gallant Misquote on Eliminating Hamas

Following last week's New York Times correction of Megan Stack's Op-Ed falsely quoting Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant calling for the annihilation of the Gaza Strip, CAMERA has prompted additional corrections at NPR, Salt Lake Tribune and The Telegraph (London).

Snip, Snip: AP Cleans Up Slain Hamas Member Osaid Rimawi

AP runs more than 1200 words on the Israeli military's allegedly unprovoked fatal shooting of Osaid Rimawi, "a high school student studying to become a barber," never once mentioning that he was a Hamas member.

CNN’s Investigations: Biased Expert Analysis

Expert analysis, when used properly, can help audiences contextualize factual reporting. But when used improperly, it can mislead audiences by exaggerating or downplaying certain details to fit into a preconceived narrative. Repeatedly, CNN’s investigations have fallen into the latter category by portraying demonstrably biased “experts” as neutral sources.

CAMERA Op-Ed: The Messages Behind Israel’s Beirut Strike

An Israeli strike in Beirut took out top Hamas operatives, including Saleh Al-Arouri. CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner that the strike is about more than eliminating a top Hamas commander, it is also about sending a message to terrorists: those responsible for October 7th will be held accountable.

The Washington Post Reprints Antisemitic Blood Libel

A Hamas press release has accused Israel of harvesting the organs of dead Palestinians. A Washington Post reprint of the Hamas statement tells readers that ‘the claims could not be independently verified.’

CNN’s Investigations: Omitting Exculpatory Information

Good investigative journalism is journalism at its best. Unfortunately, that kind of good journalism is rare at CNN. Rather than producing impartial, professional investigations, many of the network’s journalists are acting as one-sided prosecutors when it comes to Israel.

AFP Posthumously Demotes Hamas Commanders to Bodyguards

AFP improves coverage after initially demoting terror commanders killed alongside Salah Al-Arouri to "bodyguards" and omitting the Hamas deputy's second claim to infamy: founding the terror organization's military wing.

More Hamas Advocacy on PBS NewsHour

As a recipient of  federal funding, PBS must comply with the federal statute requiring strict adherence to objectivity and balance in programs of a controversial nature. Yet PBS Newshour continues to present one-sided segments with guests who shill for Hamas.

How the AP (and WaPo and NY Times) Lie with Statistics

With the Associated Press claim that Israel's war against Hamas “now sits among the deadliest and most destructive in history,” the wire service joins a parade of statistical inventions and manipulations.
Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton Sets the Israel-Gaza Record Straight on The View

Appearing on The View, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton debunks the anti-Israel narrative that has become commonplace in much of the media and a sizeable portion of the population in the US and Europe, often citing what she personally witnessed in office.

NPR Complicit in UNRWA Underreporting of Aid Trucks

Now that Israel has opened the Kerem Shalom crossing, UNRWA's Phillippe Lazzarini underreports the amount of aid passing through and ignores a new route for Jordanian aid. NPR's Mary Louise Kelly collegially plays along, repeatedly "correcting" President Herzog.
Alex Safian with Mark Levin

CAMERA’s Alex Safian appears on Mark Levin’s Life, Liberty and Levin

CAMERA’s Alex Safian joined Mark Levin on his top-rated FoxNews program Life, Liberty and Levin to discuss the abysmal media coverage of Israel’s war against Hamas, which was triggered by the terrorist organization’s horrific massacre of Israeli civilians on Oct. 7.

CAMERA Report: Brown University’s Choices Curriculum is a Platform for Anti-Zionist Narrative

CAMERA has just published its investigation of the Choices Program's curriculum pertaining to Zionism, Israel and the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Replete with historical revisionism and anti-Zionist tropes ,it whitewashes Palestinian aggression and terrorism, erases Hamas’ stated goals and genocidal intent and portrays the existence of the Jewish state as illegitimate. Such a curriculum can only fuel the growing antisemitism in U.S. classrooms.

CAMERA Op-Ed: Harvard excludes rather than includes the Jews

Despite hiring so many presumably brilliant minds and sinking millions into addressing the issue of diversity, equity and inclusion, the best answer to antisemitism the university could come up with was “hide the Jews.”  

A CNN Article Tries to Explain Away Palestinian Support for Hamas’s Atrocities

Two CNN reporters spin the disturbing results showing widespread Palestinian support for the October 7 attack by Palestinian terrorist organizations by suggesting support for the attack doesn’t actually mean they support the atrocities that characterized the attack. This isn't journalism. This is damage control.

Hamas Propaganda by Doctors Without Borders, Courtesy of PBS Newshour

PBS is peddling Hamas propaganda via representatives from Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), also known by its English translation, “Doctors Without Borders.” Representatives are accusing Israel of war crimes and demanding a ceasefire while denying Hamas' role in the war.

CNN Weekend Review, 12/15-12/17: Is Reality Just an Israeli Allegation?

Over the weekend, there was much to desire when it came to CNN’s online coverage of the Israel-Hamas War. Reality was downgraded to just an “Israeli claim.” Terror tunnels were upgraded to a McDonald’s drive-through. Meanwhile, important stories that provide crucial context for those seeking to understand events continue to be omitted.

Reuters’ Error, Double Standard and Omissions

Reuters' recent misreporting includes a factual error (no, Houthi attacks did not hit Eilat), an egregious double standard on casualty reporting, and whitewashing Palestinian combatants plus Hamas' brutal takeover.

The Washington Post Covers for CAIR, Again

The executive director of the Council on American Islamic Relations hailed the October 7th massacre of civilians by Hamas, prompting a rebuke from the White House. Yet the Washington Post, which frequently quotes the faux civil rights organization, failed to note either the rebuke or CAIR's praise for Hamas.

CAMERA Op-Ed: Anti-Israel Crybullies and the Free Speech Inversion

As defined at Dictionary.com, a crybully is “a person who self-righteously harasses or intimidates others while playing the victim, especially of a perceived social injustice.” It’s a particularly accurate label for the crowd of anti-Israel activists who have spent decades working to silence and intimidate Jewish and Israeli voices on campuses while also portraying themselves as victims of an attack on their free speech.

CNN Stood by a False Claim. CAMERA Has the Proof.

CAMERA promptly alerted the network to a significant error in an video report about released Palestinian prisoners. Instead of a correction, the day after CAMERA’s communication, the network went on to publish a written version of the report, prominently featuring the same exact error in the first two sentences. CAMERA has now acquired and provided the network with conclusive evidence that the claim is false.

They Spew Hatred & Glorify Terrorism. But a CNN Article Depicts Them As “The Voice of All These Victims.”

"It’s about humanity." That’s how a CNN article describes one woman’s efforts to help connect Gazans to telephone and internet services. “We are the voice of all these victims,” says another journalist extensively quoted in the piece who benefited from the effort. The problem? Their concept of “humanity” doesn’t include Israelis, and when Israelis are the victims, their voices express glee.

After false hate-crime story, President Biden apologizes to Muslim-American Advocates

During a meeting at the White House with Muslim Americans, President Biden was told a false story by an attendee that three of her relatives in Chapel Hill, NC had been murdered in an anti-Muslim hate crime. According to press reports this had a deep effect on the President, triggering him to apologize for doubting Hamas casualty claims.

Excessive Force and the Israel-Hamas War

The destroyed al-Salam Hospital in Mosul, Iraq after US bombing.

Israel's war against terrorist groups in Hamas-ruled Gaza has triggered the usual charges of illegal, disproportionate and excessive force, but the analysis shows that Israel has taken more care to protect civilians than legally required, and has acted more humanely than other countries engaged in similar battles, including the United States in Iraq, Panama, etc., and countries including the US fighting under the United Nations banner in Somalia. (Photo above Copyright 2017 Associated Press)

CAMERA Op-Ed: Dear Media, Hamas Couldn’t Do it Without You

The press has helped Hamas by playing into its narrative. Post columnists like Ishaan Tharoor and Karen Attiah have accused the Jewish state of genocide while actively obfuscating Israel's efforts to limit civilian casualties and Hamas's efforts to encourage them. As CAMERA tells the Washington Times, Hamas wants their human shields. And too many in the press want to shield Hamas.

CAMERA Op-Ed: Voice of America Helps Hamas

Voice of America, the taxpayer-funded and U.S.-operated news network, is refusing to call Hamas “terrorists,” claiming that neutral language should be used. But as CAMERA tells The Federalist, VOA should heed Elie Wiesel's advice: “Neutrality helps the oppressor.”

CNN’s Tara John Delivers Another Slanted Piece

CNN Senior Writer Tara John’s name has repeatedly featured on the bylines of some of CNN’s worst pieces since the October 7 Massacre carried out by Palestinian terrorists. Between her omissions, inaccuracies, contradictions, and false equivalencies, CNN’s readers are being done a tremendous disservice.

CAMERA Op-Ed: The Palestinian Authority is Ill-Prepared to Govern Gaza

Some policymakers and press outlets have argued that the Palestinian Authority should rule Gaza after Hamas loses control. But as CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner, this notion is fraught with peril. The PA has rejected peace, supported terrorism and failed to uphold order in the areas that it presently controls.

Who Verifies NPR’s Reporting on the Hamas War?

"NPR cannot independently verify these claims" is the refrain used to discredit Israel's claims and the evidence that supports them. Not so for Hamas claims of casualties that are treated as authoritative figures that need no verification. The double standard raises the question of whether anyone can verify NPR's reporting or credibility.

Ehud Barak Misleads about the Shifa Tunnels

Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak seems to say in this interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour that Israel created the underground "bunkers" beneath Shifa Hospital. What was he talking about? The answer is he confused the word bunker with the word basement. This will become obvious when we outline the facts on who built Shifa Hospital, including the basement, and who built the tunnels and bunkers.

Damn the Evidence: AP’s Hushed Tones On Hamas

AP continues to treat Hamas as more credible than Israel, failing to label the terror group’s claims as unverifiable even as it cautions against "unverifiable" video evidence of hostages and tunnels in Shifa exposing Hamas' lies.

CNN Grasps at Straws to Imply an IDF Conspiracy

CNN has repeatedly gone to great lengths to bestow undeserved credibility on the claims of a U.S.-designated terrorist organization, Hamas. In the latest iteration, after Israel brought in cameras to show visual evidence of Hamas’s crimes, two CNN journalists in a contrived, fact-free, and specious story sought to undermine the IDF’s credibility.

CAMERA Op-Ed: The Washington Post’s Blood Libel

The Washington Post has accused Israel of genocide. But as CAMERA tells JNS, facts show that Israel is actively working to reduce casualties while Hamas is working to encourage them. But for the Post, Hamas remains a trusted source.

CNN is Still Laundering Hamas Propaganda

CNN’s mission statement claims that the network is “committed to serving you,” the media consumer. Instead, CNN is acting as if it is committed to serving Hamas.

CAMERA Op-Ed: “Glorifying Atrocities: The Case of Brown University”

After the Holocaust, many bought into the idea that the best way to prevent the reoccurrence of similar horrors was through education. If the world knows what happened, the thinking went, it’ll never allow such atrocities to repeat. But after the 10/7 Massacre in Israel, we’re seeing a much darker reality about education’s role in shaping society’s attitudes toward atrocities.

CAMERA Op-Ed: Israeli Innovation and War

In their new book, The Art of Military Innovation: Lessons from the Israel Defense Forces, Edward Luttwak and Eitan Shamir explain that Israel must be more than tough to survive. It must be smart as well.
Amanpour

CNN Launders Hamas Propaganda

When organized crime wants to hide profits from their criminal enterprises, they launder it through seemingly legitimate business, and after a step or two, the money is clean. Unfortunately, CNN is trying the same trick with casualty reporting from Gaza.

ABC Significantly Improves Timeline on Israel-Hamas War

ABC thoroughly corrects after reporting that Hamas targeted "settlers," uncritically parroting Hamas' false claim that "all" of its fired rockets landed in Israel, and inventing that Gazans who don't flee the north face the "wrath of 400,000 Israeli soldiers."
Reuters

The Day Reuters Took a Memo from Hamas

The Reuters news agency, which banks and brokers the world over rely on for accurate news for their investment decisions, acts like an obedient stenographer taking a memo from the terrorist group Hamas in its reporting on the Gaza conflict.

CAMERA Op-Ed: The Washington Post Wants You to Trust Hamas

Both common sense and experience should tell journalists not to trust Hamas, a genocidal U.S.-designated terrorist group that uses human shields. Both journalists and policymakers, including the U.S. Secretary of State, have warned not to do so. But the Washington Post is advocating for trusting the terror organization.

Los Angeles Times: Israelis Died, Palestinians Killed

According to The Los Angeles Times, some 1400 Israeli side "died" in the Israel-Hamas war while some 9000 Palestinians were "killed." With this egregious whitewash of Hamas' ISIS-like atrocities, ethical journalism dies alongside 1400 Israelis.
Shifa Hospital Plaza

No Power in Gaza, Hospitals Shutting Down? Watch this Video

Hamas-controlled health authorities have been claiming -- for weeks -- that Gaza hospitals will have to close in a day or two for lack of power, and this has been repeated by numerous media outlets. But what Hamas is omitting is that thanks to a UN/WHO program Gaza hospitals have extensive solar panel installations on their roofs, which can supply a substantial portion of their power needs. Watch the video and see for yourself.

AP’s Selective Inability to Verify Information

Five times in the last week AP cautioned readers that information concerning the Israel-Hamas war "could not be independently verifed." All five times that information originated with Israel, not Hamas. AP treats the terror organization as more credible than Israel.

A Dictionary of Hamas Supporters’ Chants and Slogans

Slogans and chants of Hamas supporters are being increasingly heard at coordinated rallies against Israel, taking place in the U.S. and across Europe.  They are not always fully understood by those who hear them — and even those who chant them sometimes deny their meaning and intention.

CAMERA Op-Ed: Hamas’ Strategy? Human Sacrifice

Hamas has a new strategy: human sacrifice. As one former Pentagon official has noted, it is innovative in the worst way. And as CAMERA tells the Washington Times, the terrorist group is counting on the media to help.
Queen Rania of Jordan

Open letter to Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan

An open letter to Queen Rania of Jordan, who in a CNN interview decried alleged Israeli "shelling" of Palestinian civilians in Gaza, raising the question of whether she is aware of how her late father-in-law King Hussein defeated a PLO uprising in Jordan by shelling and flattening Palestinian refugee camps, and expelling many of the survivors, including PLO Chairman Yasir Arafat, to Lebanon.

Is Israel’s “Siege” Denying Water and Food to Gaza? Just the Facts

Israeli Power into Gaza
After horrific mass terror attacks by Hamas, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant announced a “complete siege” of Gaza: "There will be no electricity, no food, no fuel, everything is closed." Because some have mistakenly interpreted this to mean that Israel supplied -- and is now cutting off -- all of Gaza’s water, electricity, and food, it's important to layout the facts.

CNN Leaves ICC Prosecutor’s Questionable Claims Unchallenged

Media outlets, including CNN, cannot simply treat UN and ICC figures as neutral, unbiased sources whose claims can be left uncontextualized or unchallenged. In times of war, journalists must be extra careful, too. To do otherwise is to risk playing a part in Hamas’ cynical use of human shields and civilian deaths.

UPDATED: “Jewish Voice for Peace” (JVP): What the Media is Concealing

What is "Jewish Voice for Peace"? It's an anti-Semitic hate group that masquerades as a Jewish peace-promoting organization. And much of the mainstream media is concealing its anti-Semitic agenda. CAMERA's backgrounder has been expanded and updated with evidence of its dangerous, anti-Jewish actions. The group justifies Jewish bloodshed and agitates against the right of Jews to defend themselves while promoting resources for anti-Semitic engagement and classic, anti-Jewish blood libels.

NPR Runs Interference for Palestinian Terrorist Regime

Focusing on NPR's coverage of a single incident – the deadly explosion that took place near the Al-Ahli hospital in Hamas-run Gaza – this detailed analysis is a case study of the methods NPR reporters use to bolster an anti-Israel narrative and run interference for Israel’s enemies.

The Hamas-UN-LA Times Echo Chamber

A leading terror organization has mastered the art of the echo chamber, enlisting a leading Western media outlet to falsely cast its claims as independently verified by a supposedly authoritative international body, thereby repackaging them as authentic and reliable.

CNN Deceptively Attributes Hamas Casualty Figures to “Aid Group”

CNN can’t help itself. Last week, the network was caught uncritically spreading Hamas’s propaganda that Israel struck Al-Ahli hospital on October 17th. A week later, CNN is back at it, once again spreading Hamas claims, but this time deceiving its audience into thinking the terrorist organization's casualty figures came from a legitimate, independent source.

Gaza Casualties: Journalists Must Exercise Care and Be Honest with Audience

Spreading Hamas propaganda without qualification or context is no different than uncritically airing Islamic State propaganda. Journalists must clearly articulate to their audiences that when they use Hamas casualty figures, they are relying on an internationally designated terrorist organization. The public should know those important factors that weigh on the credibility of such significant claims. 

CAMERA Op-Ed: The Washington Post Echoes Hamas

The Washington Post is failing. The newspaper can't help but repeat Hamas propaganda. Worse still, the newspaper is literally justifying the greatest slaughter of Jewish civilians since the Holocaust.

CNN’s Mea Culpa on Al-Ahli Hospital Coverage Isn’t Enough

Contrary to CNN's depiction, it wasn’t that this was a “he said she said” issue, and the network just failed by not waiting for the “she said.” The issue was that they took Hamas’s claims at face value, and then they gave the terrorist organization’s claims equal weight to that of Israel’s, notwithstanding the IDF’s claims were backed up by audio and visual evidence.

NBC Errs on Rafah Crossing, U.S. Message to Israel on Civilians

NBC falsely reports that Secretary of State Blinken encouraged Israel "not to target civilians." While the US administration urges Israel to minimize civilian casualties and to allow humanitarian assistance, it knows full well that Israel, unlike Hamas, does not target civlians. And, no, the Palestinian Authority does not control the Rafah crossing. Hamas does.

CAIR Spokesman Falsely Implies Jewish Responsibility for Murder in U.S.

Lest anyone still doubts that anti-Semitism is inherent in the anti-Zionist narrative depicting Jews in Israel as settler-colonialists responsible for all the violence in the Middle East and Jewish supporters responsible for violence elsewhere in the world, and lest they doubt the anti-Zionist/anti-Semitic agenda of CAIR, listen to its spokesman's words.

U Penn “Palestine Writes” Organizer Susan Abulhawa Cheers Gaza Massacre

Abulhawa's jubilant reaction to the Hamas slaughter of Israelis was consistent with the demonizing of the Jewish state promoted continuously at the "literary" conference. Incessant denials of Jewish indigenous ties to a land filled with evidence at every turn of those ties were accompanied by constant references to a "glorious" and "ancient" Palestinian past.

Human Rights Watch on MSNBC: Urging Civilians to Evacuate is Terrorism

When a Human Rights Watch activist was given two chances on MSNBC to talk about the situation in Israel, she used the word “terrorism” only once. No, not in reference to the mass murder, rape, mutilation, torture, and burning alive of 1,400 Israeli men, women, and children at the hands of Palestinian terrorists. Rather, she used it to describe the Israeli Defense Force’s urging of Gazans to evacuate northern Gaza where the IDF intends to strike hard against those Palestinian terrorists.

CAMERA Op-Ed: In the Middle East, a Time for Choosing

Hamas and other Iranian proxies have just carried out the greatest slaughter of Jewish civilians since the Holocaust. And as CAMERA tells the Washington Times, the United States and the West have a choice to make: will they stand with Israel and the civilized world? Or will they continue to enable Iran in all its barbarism?

ESPN Erases Evil

Popular sports network ESPN is completely out of its league when it comes to reporting on Hamas' ISIS-like evil atrocities. If the sports network is not capable of adequately covering terrorism, it should stick to familiar turf.

How Many Errors Can USA Today Fit in One Article?

The number of erroneous and seriously misleading claims contained in just this article raises serious concerns about USA Today’s commitment to accuracy. That the errors all seem to downplay Palestinian terrorism or distort the Israeli and Jewish history similarly raises concern about USA Todays’ commitment to fairness in reporting.

CNBC Sanitizes Hamas

In the span of two sentences, CNBC grossly misrepresented Hamas’s goals and, in what reads as an attempted justification for Hamas, got both the law and the facts wrong.

CAMERA Op-Ed: No Safe Haven for Hamas

Hamas has launched a devastating war against Israel, slaughtering hundreds of civilians. But as CAMERA tells the Washington Examiner, its leadership lives in luxury, far from the consequences of their actions. And that must change.

Testimony: Family and Witnesses Speak of Oct. 7 Horrors

Heartbreaking testimony by the family of victims and chilling eyewitness accounts of first responders document the pain and horror of the attacks on civilians. And they underscore the callousness of atrocity denial — including by former Palestinian Authority Information Minister Mustafa Barghouti, who told CNN viewers that Hamas didn't target civilians.
