After misstating why critics believe an SJP poster depicting a kite endorses violence, NBC updated its article to discuss Palestinian attack kites.
The press has largely ignored an Oct. 29, 2018 report by the Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS), which highlighted new documentation seized by Israel from Tehran’s “nuclear archive” which “indicates that Iran’s nuclear weaponization efforts did not stop after 2003.” That report upends a long-standing media narrative.
Although Western press outlets and policymakers often discuss the Quds Force’s role as a purveyor of terrorism, less known is the pivotal role that the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) played in creating the IRGC. Today’s IRGC is a beneficiary of what was arguably the preeminent terrorist organization of the 1970s: the PLO
Sky News Arabia's shoddy coverage of elections in the Golan Heights' Druze towns mirrors the type of anti-Israel propaganda rampant in the Arab media and reflects a disregard for basic journalistic standards which casts a shadow on its London-based parent.
CAMERA has asked Sally Dyck, UMC's Bishop in Chicago, to consider how the her denomination's writers and peace activists have promoted anti-Israel propaganda and in so doing, helped portray Jews in the United States and Israel as the "repugnant other."
Following a Washington Post correction, Reuters today also corrects the erroneous claim that "Pittsburgh Jewish leaders" penned a letter to President Trump telling him he is unwelcome at memorial events for the Tree of Life massacre victims.
A negative narrative that's rapidly gaining currency in the media is about a broadening rift between Israeli and American Jews caused by an Orthodox rabbinate in Israel intolerant of other Jewish denominations. So popular is this theme that it is sometimes imposed upon news events as context, even when the evidence suggests otherwise.
After communication from CAMERA, the Washington Post corrected a misleading headline suggesting that Pittsburgh's Jewish community leaders were averse to a condolence visit by the U.S. President.
It was only a matter of time for partisan journalists to exploit the tragic massacre of Jewish worshippers at Tree of Life, a Pittsburgh synagogue, to promote their own biases. Within no time, charges of anti-Semitism were wielded as a weapon with which to attack those of different political persuasions and those who support Israel.
The Washington Post highlights abuses by the Palestinian Authority and Hamas. However, the paper's coverage of the topic is belated and seemingly spurred by its reliance on an anti-Israel NGO. Other draconian measures by Palestinian officials, such as their imprisonment and threats towards Palestinians who sell or rent land to Jews, are omitted by The Post.
Haaretz's inexplicable inclusion of Linda Sarsour's condemnation of the synagogue massacre alongside those of Israeli leaders is puzzling. But the paper's failure to note Sarsour's embrace of Louis Farrakhan is downright reprehensible, and gives a false hechsher (kosher stamp) to a purveyor of anti-Semitism.
The Washington Post continues to obfuscate on the goals of the anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) effort. The Post hides the real agenda of BDS and omits the movement's ties to terrorist-linked entities. In so doing, the newspaper violates its own stated standards and policies.
The newspaper speaks of two Jordanians killed in a "confrontation" with an Israeli embassy guard. Why does it avoid mentioning that one of those Jordanians first stabbed the guard?
Several Reuters captions Friday failed to note that balloons sent from Gaza into Israel were carrying incendiary devices. One caption refers cryptically to balloons carrying an unspecified type of "device."
CAMERA previously discussed the disinformation campaign by self-promoting CNN commentator and Temple University professor Marc Lamont Hill. The Investigative Project on Terrorism provides new evidence that Lamont Hill has now progressed from justifying terrorism to promoting it.
The New York Times story about Israel's High Court ruling to allow graduate student and BDS activist Lara Alqasem into the country serves as yet another vehicle for the newspaper to whitewash the campaign as one that simply promotes "Palestinian rights."
AFP's basic premises -- that young eager swimmers in Gaza have nowhere to practice besides the polluted coast and that the athletes are so desperate that they swim in waters that hardly anyone else would dare enter -- just don't hold water.
An AFP article today falsely depicts the destruction of a Beersheba home, which this morning suffered a direct hit from a rocket fired from Gaza, as limited to "damage to the garden of the family home." CAMERA prompts correction.
CNN and Associated Press headlines falsely placed a number of Palestinians who infiltrated into Israel after they blew a hole through the Gaza fence as killed "in Gaza" when they were closing in on Israeli soldiers in Israeli territory.
On Sept. 11 2018, NPR aired another one-sided piece that cast Israel in a negative light. The piece by Sandy Tolan, who has a history of stories slanted against Israel, was based entirely on the testimony of a Palestinian activist with no Israeli perspective.
Weeks after the New York Times slurred Kenneth Marcus, who has worked to oppose anti-Semitism, as a "longtime opponent of Palestinian rights causes," the same newspaper refuses to cast a clear-cut anti-Israel activist as "anti-Israel." In fact, the Times insists her "credentials as an anti-Israel activist are far from clear-cut."
The Washington Post misleads on the true nature of the BDS movement; failing to report its documented links to terrorism and its true objective: The destruction of Israel. While it was busy filing inaccurate reports on BDS, The Post ignored a Palestinian terrorist attack and Palestinian political developments.
The Christ at the Checkpoint conferences are places where Western Christians are misinformed (sometimes willingly) by Palestinian Christians about what actually going on in Palestinian society.
Anti-Zionist conspiracy theory literature is once again in the news. A book portraying the Jewish state as all-powerful and unscrupulous, entangled in global conspiracies, wars and influence-peddling was co-authored by Leslie Cockburn who is currently running as a candidate for Congress in the 5th District of Virginia.
CAMERA prompts correction of a Bloomberg article which had wrongly claimed that Israeli officials characterized the deadly attack on civilians in the Barkan industrial park as a "militant attack." In fact, they called it a terrorist attack.
After correcting erroneous references to Tel Aviv, Haaretz joins a host of international media outlets which have previously corrected after they too botched the journalistic practice of referring to a nation's capital as shorthand for the country or its government.
CAMERA's timeline explores the associations between Jeremy Corbyn — leader of the Labour party in the United Kingdom and would-be contender for prime minister — and various terrorists, Holocaust deniers, blood libelers, and conspiracy theorists, which have contributed to the antisemitism crisis currently roiling British politics.
The Washington Post has warned about "resurgent global antisemitism." Yet, The Post has recently given two softball interviews to foreign leaders known for their antisemitism.
In an article about dramatic moments at the United Nations, the Associated Press covers up the most dramatic element of Yasir Arafat's 1974 address: that he brought a gun to the UN and delivered the address while sporting the holster. Six years ago, in contrast, AP delivered a straight account of the incident.
Last week, CAMERA prompted corrections to a Haaretz article which overstated Gaza's unemployment rate as cited by the World Bank. Days later, CAMERA elicits corrections to Haaretz reports which understated the territory's unemployment rate as cited by a UN report.
CAMERA prompts correction of the latest case of "Haaretz, Lost in Translation." Haaretz's English edition had erroneously reported that a new World Bank report cited Gaza unemployment as 70 percent. In fact, as the journalist accurately reported in Hebrew, that figure refers to youth.
The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank has long preferred snark over thoughtful analysis. And his Sept. 21, 2018 column, “America’s Jews are watching Israel in horror,” offers ample proof. In it, he slurs Israel as an apartheid state-in-the-making, while ignoring inconvenient facts.
By repeating up the language of Turkey's state-run media organization, the New York Times also repeated three errors about a clash along Gaza's border with Israel.
Almost every day brings new evidence that the New York Times has become a propaganda source, where history and current events alike are distorted and ordinary professional norms of objectivity are cast aside. A case in point is the recent "analysis" of the failed Oslo talks.
A CNN slideshow promising "Everything You Need to Know About Yom Kippur" instead delivered a bizarre, inaccurate, and irresponsible lecture about the Jewish holiday's purported focus on "Jewish corruption."
Twenty-five years after the Oslo Accords, many media outlets, and a new "documentary" from HBO, omit the reasons for their failure. Those watching the HBO film are presented with superficial history and images, with much of the real story left on the cutting room floor.
When the Israeli army disputed Hamas' account which blamed Israel for the death of 12-year-old Shady Abdel-Aal, AP rose to the journalistic challenge with accurate coverage. Reuters responsibly corrected when presented with information contradicting Hamas. AFP, in contrast, has yet to correct even as Hamas itself has backtracked.
In a gross violation of journalistic ethics and the network's own published guidelines against editorializing in news stories, Deutsche Welle Arabic television anchorwoman Dima Tarhini editorialized that Palestinian moves against Israel at the International Criminal Court is "a step we have been waiting for a long time."
Over the two-day Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) holiday, the New York Times greeted its Jewish readers with a one-two punch of news stories that strayed from fact-based reporting to attack supporters of the Jewish state and denigrate a widely accepted definition of anti-Semitism.
Mahmoud Abbas, the head of the Palestinian Authority (PA), the entity that rules the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) has been appointed to lead a terrorist organization. But as CAMERA noted in a Washington Jewish Week Op-Ed, the media has stayed silent about the purported "peace partner's" new job.
CAMERA takes to the pages of The Washington Post to address the paper's coverage of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA). CAMERA tells the paper's readers about UNRWA's politicized definition of "refugee" and the organization's documented links to terror groups.
