CAMERA Op-Ed: The Media Hides Iran’s Nuclear Weapons Program

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.

CAMERA Op-Ed: How the PLO Helped Create Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards

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

Journalists Distort Facts to Reinforce a Narrative of Religious Division

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.

Journalists Exploit Pittsburgh Synagogue Attack to Bolster Their Own Biases

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 Covers Human Rights Abuses Committed by Palestinian Officials

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.

CAMERA Op-Ed: The Washington Post Soft-Pedals BDS

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.

Marc Lamont Hill Moves From Justifying Terrorism to Promoting It

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 Again Whitewashes BDS

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."

NPR Presents Another One-Sided Report

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.

NY Times Downplays Anti-Israel Activism, Errs on Palestinian Refugees

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 Whitewashes BDS and Ignores Palestinian Terrorism

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.

Anti-Zionist Conspiracy Theories Seek the Mainstream

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.

Haaretz Corrects Reference to Tel Aviv as Israel’s Capital

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.

Jeremy Corbyn’s Antisemitism Crisis: A Timeline

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.

Concealed Carry: AP Covers Up Arafat’s Gun at the UN

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.

Haaretz Again Corrects on Gaza Unemployment Report

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.

Haaretz English Edition Corrects on Gaza Unemployment

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.

More Historical Revisionism at the New York Times

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.

CAMERA Op-Ed: The Oslo Diaries and Yasser Arafat’s Trunk

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.

Hamas’ Account of a Boy’s Death: A Media Litmus Test

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.

For Jewish New Year, NY Times Attacks an Opponent of Anti-Semitism

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.
