Media coverage of the delayed transfer of tons of mail sent to West Bank Palestinians doesn't deliver the full story, omitting crucial details along with relevant context and erasing nuance.
The head of the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan, has said that Jews are “not really Jews but are in fact Satan,” and as “great and master deceivers” they should be considered “the enemy of God and the enemy of the righteous.” Despite his well-known position as a purveyor of hatred, Netflix nearly broadcast a hagiographical “documentary” made by Farrakhan’s son.
For Robin Young and Derek Thompson, SodaStream's former employment of Palestinians and its subsequent "punishment" of employees with layoffs counterbalance the company's "positive moral valance." There are no "moral questions," however, about the BDS activists who claim credit for depriving Palestinians of their livelihoods.
Lutheran leaders and peacemakers, including Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton have a tough time mentioning Hamas's misdeeds in their public statements about the suffering in Gaza.
Gayle Harris, Suffragan Bishop for the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts, has apologized for presenting unsubstantiated atrocity stories against Israel during her church’s General Convention in July.
In several recent reports, Foreign Policy omits UNRWA’s history of promoting anti-Jewish violence and Palestinian rejectionism. Foreign Policy minimizes issues with the U.N. agency and unfairly stereotypes those seeking to reform aid to Palestinians.
CAMERA prompts correction of an NPR article which erroneously implied that Palestinian rocket fire last week solely targeted the Israeli town of Sderot. In fact, Palestinians fired at numerous communities across southern Israel.
CAMERA prompts correction of a Los Angeles Times article which erroneously stated that Gazans launched "dozens" of flaming kites and balloons at Israel since March 30. In fact, Palestinian arsonists have launched dozens of incendiary attacks on a daily basis.
Just as the claim that the IDF commits atrocities is an attempt to limit the ability of Jews to defend themselves physically, the claims that groups that defend Israel or fight antisemitism are somehow shady, engaging in immoral tactics, is an attempt to limit the Jews' ability to defend themselves rhetorically.
Too often, Vox reporters give the impression they're improvising their way through the news, delivering "facts" that might feel right to the reporter, but aren't actually true. Most recently: Vox claims Palestinian rockets in the days before the 2014 Gaza war were a "response" to Israeli airstrikes.
AP photo captions mislead with critical omissions: Israel identified a reported cultural center bombed in Gaza as a Hamas facility. Also, Prime Minister Netanyahu criticized protesters not only for waving Palestinian flags but also for chanting, "With blood and fire, we will redeem Palestine."
By repeatedly referring to "alleged" rockets fired from Gaza and further qualifying these attacks with scare quotes, The Daily Mail's Sara Malm signals that she can't be sure that Hamas really did launch 180 rockets and mortars towards Israel in 24 hours.
In their recent reports, both Foreign Policy Magazine and The Washington Post omit UNRWA’s ties to terror groups and promotion of anti-Jewish violence. UNRWA, as CAMERA highlighted in a recent Op-Ed, has a long and sordid history—and the media should report it, not cover it up.
A BBC article about Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel, and Israel's retaliatory strikes in Gaza, engages in "last-first" reporting, strips away context and introduces a factual inaccuracy, claiming that Hamas targeted a military vehicle when in fact terrorists fired at civilian vehicles.
Bishop Gayle Harris from the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts is starting to backtrack on stories she told at her church's General Convention in July. Speaking at the House of Bishops on July 13, 2018, Harris said she was "there" when a 15-year-old boy was shot 10 times in the back. In a statement issued on Aug. 9, 2018, she admits she was passing the story on second hand when she told the story to her fellow Episcopalians in July.
CAMERA's Israel office prompts correction of headline in Haaretz's English edition which inaccurately stated that the Knesset speaker refused to sign a letter because it was in Arabic. As the Hebrew headline correctly noted, Yuli Edelstein refused to sign a letter he could not understand, and had it translated into Hebrew so he could sign it.
Agence France Presse captions identify a site hit by Israel's air force as a "tourist resort" in Khan Yunis, Gaza. The army spokesman tells CAMERA: it's a training facility for Hamas' naval commando unit.
Following a well-worn pattern, The New York Times is again downplaying Palestinian belligerence, this time obscuring the fact that intensive Palestinian rocket attacks against southern Israel prompted a wave of Israeli airstrikes on Hamas sites in the Gaza Strip in the last 24 hours.
The Christian Science Monitor recently published an article highlighting Israel's policy of helping Syrians injured as a result of the Syrian Civil War.
The role of a shill is to conceal any nefarious intent by the huckster, to protect the sheen of the product.
One can debate the merits and demerits of a law while presenting the facts accurately. Indeed, that is the role of a journalist. Both news stories and opinion columns should be based on accurate facts without overstatement or distortion. Unfortunately, many in the mainstream media have failed in these respects.
The PA and its leaders have a long and tragic history of rejecting peace and proliferating terror, irrespective of who sits in the White House. And the press, responsible in large measure for crafting the first draft of history, would do well to record it.
The World Council of Churches needs to explain why its activists in the Holy Land violate rules against engaging in political activism while in the Holy Land.
In both a news article and an editorial, The Los Angeles Times misrepresents Israel's new nation-state law, inaccurately stating that it grants an "advantageous status to Jewish-only communities.
Journal opinion writer Rabbi Bruce Warshal invoked the antisemitic trope of Jews controlling the government.
Following communication from CAMERA, PBS posted an editor's note to accompanying online copies of a Newshour segment that erroneously identified Tel Aviv as Israel's capital.
Palestinian rulers oppressing and brutalizing their own people seldom make the front page. The reason is simple: The media is often uninterested in reporting on Palestinian affairs unless Israel can be blamed.
Based on flimsy evidence and a selective reporting of facts, the teen fashion magazine has promoted a libel that was originated by an anti-Israel fringe group.
CAMERA prompts Reuters to correct after an article erroneously referred to Tel Aviv as shorthand for Israel. The news agency also corrected a headline which inaccurately stated that a new Israeli laws "bans some left-wing groups," while the law in question also affects right-wing groups which take action against Israel's army.
Following communication from CAMERA, AP corrects a headline and article which incorrectly stated that Israel shuttered the cargo crossing into the Gaza Strip. In fact, today's new limitations suspends the transfer of fuel and gas until Sunday, but food and medicine are still crossing through Kerem Shalom.
Contempt for Israeli Jews, especially those living in the West Bank, is sadly evident in the writings of Bruce N. Fisk, a well-known (and well-regarded) New Testament scholar, from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California.
Adjectives and labels are used to influence rather than inform; they are the weapons of journalists who prefer advocacy journalism over objective reporting. The frequent use of labels by Times reporters demonstrate how far they've strayed from their stated mission of independent and deep reporting.
CAMERA prompts corrections to Agence France Presse captions which had originally referred to rockets "reportedly fired from the Gaza Strip," as if origin of the punishing rocket attacks had yet to be confirmed. (In fact, Hamas had already claimed responsibility, an unusual step.)
