It is an unfortunate Washington reality that stories about US intelligence breaches are often exploited to charge Israel with spying on the United States, or otherwise compromising US security.

A series of Agence France-Presse photo captions erase the crimes of Bassam al-Sayeh, convicted for his role in the 2015 murders of Rabbi Eitam and Naama Henkin.

CAMERA prompts correction after Haaretz's Chemi Shalev referred to the July 2014 kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens as "the kidnapping of three Israeli soldiers."

A recent Washington Post editorial faulted Israel for defending itself against Iranian proxies in Iraq.
Reuters captions about burning fields in southern Lebanon clearly identify the blaze's cause: an Israeli shell. In contrast, Reuters captions about damage in Israel fail to identify the cause: the Hezbollah anti-tank missile attack which prompted the Israeli response. Reuters' double standard is consistent with incomplete captions about Palestinian arson attacks in southern Israel.

CAMERA prompts correction of a Reuters article which erroneously claimed that gay marriages are "illegal" in Israel. While gay marriages, like all Jewish marriages in Israel carried outside the Orthodox Rabbinate are not recognized, they are not in violation of any law.
