CAMERA has hung a giant, 35-foot billboard directly outside the New York Times building that spotlights the paper’s biased coverage against Israel.
The Washington Post's offered extensive, and often misleading, coverage of Israel's elections. Post reporters and op-eds portrayed Israeli PM Bibi Netanyahu as the obstacle to peace, while completely omitting the responsibility of Palestinian leadership.
The New York Times is at it again – sanitizing Omar Barghouti and his Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement– this time in a column by its resident BDS defender, Michelle Goldberg.
The New York Times falsely casts condemnation of Rep. Ilhan Omar's antisemitic tweets as limited to "some Jewish Democrats," ignoring the Democratic Leadership's statement against "Omar's use of antisemitic tropes." The leadership is comprised of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (a Catholic) and five more congresspeople, all of them not Jewish.

The New York Times claims that the Oslo Accords "committed both sides to a two-state solution." They did no such thing.
PBS airs another one-sided film that reduces complex events into a simplistic morality tale of Palestinian heroes and Israeli villains. Like most other PBS films on the Arab-Israeli conflict, Naila and the Uprising conceals essential facts and presents a partisan version of events within a false framework.
A photo caption misidentifies a billboard showing the Prime Minister alongside far-right politicians as "a campaign ad for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his right-wing allies." In fact, it's an ad for the competing Blue and White party, keen to paint Netanyahu as a close ally of extremists.
That the New York Times chose to publish Nathan Thrall’s "How the Battle Over Israel and Anti-Semitism Is Fracturing American Politics" is not surprising: Thrall can be counted on to produce, on demand, the usual anti-Israel screed that has long been norm at the Times. But Thrall outdoes himself this time.
Nowhere on the Journal's front page is there any indication of the Israeli home that was destroyed or the Israeli civilians that were injured.
Foreign Policy labeled the disappearance of enriched uranium decades ago from a Pennsylvania facility "one of the most confounding puzzles of the nuclear era" despite investigations involving CIA, Congress, FBI and others. But The New York Times states as fact: Rafi Eitan played an important role. UPDATE: Times corrects: "that allegation was never proved."

The Palestinian Authority has chosen to keep paying terrorists at the cost of losing U.S. aid. The media would do well to note that the unfolding crisis in PA-ruled areas is not only of the Authority's making, it's a statement of it priorities.
Following contact from CAMERA, The Washington Post changes a report that implies Rep. Rashida Tlaib merely opposes Israel on the grounds that it is a "Jewish-only" state.
Contradicting both the High Commissioner and Jaffa Arabs who lived through the events, editors of The New York Times, in Manhattan, rewrote history, falsely reporting that in 1948 "most of Jaffa's Arab residents were forcibly removed from their homes." The falsehood appears in the context of a "correction," no less.
CAMERA takes to the pages of The Baltimore Sun to educate readers about the discriminatory nature of the anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement, which has links to U.S.-designated terror groups.

CAMERA prompts correction of a Reuters article which erroneously reported that "nearly all" of Gaza's residents are 1948 refugees or their descendants. In fact, that figure is closer to 70 percent.

A CAMERA Op-Ed in the Times of Israel discusses how the New York Times bolsters members of congress who push the boundaries of anti-Semitic expression and attempt to redefine anti-Semitism..

CAMERA prompts correction of a CBC report which erroneously counted gunmen, infiltrators and Palestinians who engaged in other violent attacks at the Israel-Gaza border among demonstrators killed by Israeli fire. But editors declined to remove a completely irrelevant passage about Canadians joining ISIS from the feature on Canadians "lone soldier" recruits to the IDF whose inclusion creates a grossly unfounded comparison.
In covering the UN Human Rights Council's Gaza report, the New York Times misleads readers about Palestinian demands for a “right of return,” ignores widespread international criticism of the UNHRC’s anti-Israel bias, and conceals accounts of gunfire and explosives used by rioters.
CAMERA sent a letter to Rev. Darrell Cates, Director of Conference and Church Relations for the Oklahoma United Methodist Foundation about the Christ at the Checkpoint Conference he helped organize last year. In the letter, CAMERA challenged conference organizers to decide between "anti-normalization" and genuine peace activism.
First term Representative Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is obsessed with Israel, Tweeting such gems as “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel” and charging AIPAC buys US support for Israel. Besides being offensive she's dead wrong, and here's the proof.
The Washington Post's coverage of the anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement is superficial, inaccurate and lazy. As CAMERA notes in a recent Op-Ed, The Post's failure to report accurately about BDS comes at the expense of its reputation.
CAMERA prompts improved language after the AP initially reported that that the Egyptian-Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip was "[o]stensibly meant to prevent arms from reaching Hamas."

In fact, Benjamin Netanyahu's meeting with Vladminir Putin will address coordination with the Russian, not Syrian, army.

With growing frequency, The Washington Post has published op-eds that effectively whitewash or obfuscate on antisemitism when it emanates from the left. The recent controversy over Ilhan Omar’s most recent antisemitic tweet offers several examples.
For more than forty years, press and policymakers have been misreading the Islamic Republic of Iran. In four decades, The Washington Post, for example, has gone from comparing regime founder Ayatollah Khomeini to Gandhi, to presenting a regime apparatchik and 9/11 truther as a "moderate."
While other groups claim that Jews should not be permitted to live as a minority among Palestinians in the West Bank, Amnesty goes even farther, targeting the ability of Jews to travel there to see their own history.
What is "Jewish Voice for Peace"? It is an anti-Semitic hate group that masquerades as a Jewish social justice, peace-promoting organization. While the mainstream media has been derelict in covering up for it, the evidence must speak for itself.

The rise in antisemitism is troubling. So is the media's growing tendency to politicize, obfuscate, omit—and even perpetuate—antisemitic tropes.
"Time to Break the Silence on Palestine" demands Michelle Alexander's New York Times Op-Ed, as if the very same paper has not been publishing a daily drumbeat of material focused on alleged Israeli crimes, real and imagined. The only "silence on Palestine" has been on Palestinian conduct, as the paper's own public editor noted in 2014.
The Washington Post used an obituary for former Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Arens to belittle the current prime minister of Israel. The obituary displayed the newspaper's anti-Netanyahu zeal and its inability to present readers with the full story.
Despite all the braggadocio from church leaders at the UCC’s 2015 General Synod about not profiting from Israeli companies that do business in the West Bank at their church’s 2015 General Synod, the denomination’s pension and endowment funds are still doing exactly that — four years later.
Of late, the Forward seems to be on an ongoing quest to find new ways to surpass previous lows.
Journalists and policymakers often write of "the Arab street" as if it were a monolith. Yet, by overstating the impact that close ties with Israel would have on relations with Arab nations, generations of policymakers and pundits have been getting "the street" wrong.
