Is PBS doing its due diligence or offering itself as a mouthpiece for an Iranian propaganda campaign? The Iranian regime’s PR campaign to avoid Western sanctions is aimed at neutralizing criticism of Iran’s crimes, including its leaders’ hate rhetoric and eradicative threats against the Jewish state. A recent NewsHour report seemed to be echoing the same message.
Haaretz's Levy insists it's often "impossible" to criticize Israel in mainstream Western newspapers. Perhaps he's never read a mainstream Western newspaper?
Marc Lamont Hill's recent U.N. speech calling for the elimination of Israel should come as no surprise; despite efforts by the media to muddy the waters, both Hill and the U.N. committee he was addressing have a long history of opposing Jewish self-determination.
Marc Lamont Hill called for violent resistance. He called for a Palestine to exist instead of, and not alongside, Israel. He called for policies that would upend Israel’s demographic balance and disempower the Jews. Why are so many of his defenders gaslighting Hill's critics instead of defending the actual ideas promoted by the former CNN contributor?
CAMERA prompted a correction to a Washington Post headline, which incorrectly blamed Israel itself for the actions of private Israeli-founded firm
Airbnb's claim that settlements are “at the core of the dispute between Israelis and Palestinians” reflects a lack of understanding of the history of the region and of the history of the conflict itself.
Steven Fox, CEO of Veracity Worldwide, emphatically denies any connection to a Facebook page filled with antisemitic entries.
In French, Agence France Presse managed to report accurately on Doctors Without Borders' entreaty to Palestinian and Israeli authorities to address the healthcare situation in Gaza. Why couldn't they do it in English?
Following contact from CAMERA, The Hill quickly and commendably changed its breaking news headline on the firing of Hamas apologist and former CNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill.
It is no secret that Marc Lamont Hill is a radical who hates Israel, promotes anti-Israeli violence and terrorism, and advocates the violent elimination of the Jewish state. After asking how long would he continue as a political commentator on CNN, our question has been answered. The network has finally severed its ties with him.
Months after the Hamas-run Ministry of Health removed Laila al-Ghandour from the list of fatalities it blames on Israel, a caption in Reuters' Pictures of the Year 2018 falsely claims the infant died from inhaling tear gas at the Gaza border with Israel. In response to communication from CAMERA, Reuters corrects.
CAMERA prompts correction of a National Geographic article which contained an ahistorical reference to disputed West Bank land. At no point prior to the Oslo Accords did Palestinians control the disputed territories.
The anti-Israel indoctrination of high school students in Newton, Massachusetts continues. A teacher inculcates students with a deeply flawed history of the Arab-Israeli conflict in a senior elective class, while the superintendent assures parents that all is well.
After reporting yesterday that "Iran has never threatened to attack Israel," the Associated Press' unfortunate clarification today casts those very threats as a matter of Israeli perception, as opposed to reality.
CAMERA prompts correction of a letter-to-the-editor by Eitan Peled, former programming director for SJP at UCLA, for his false claim that there are "hundreds of Palestinian children in Israeli military prisons." No Palestinians, minors or otherwise, are held in Israeli military prisons.
Following communication from CAMERA, Haaretz clarifies its Airbnb coverage, making clear that the hospitality company's West Bank settlements boycott does not also extend to eastern Jerusalem. The New York Post likewise corrects the error.
CAMERA prompts correction of a CBSN report which falsely stated that Palestinians had fired "hundreds of rockets at Israel's military." CBSN corrects, stating that, in fact, Palestinians fired hundreds of rockets at Israeli cities and civilian targets.
The Washington Post continues to omit UNRWA's links to terrorist organizations and its promotion of anti-Jewish violence. The paper's coverage of UNRWA obfuscates and minimizes the truth about the organization.
CAMERA prompts correction of a New Yorker article which had falsely claimed that Israeli troops killed a Gaza fisherman "ostensibly for sailing past the six-mile limit," but the improved version still neglects to report that according to both Israeli and Palestinian sources, Nawaf Attar was approaching the Gaza security fence when he was shot dead.
Hezbollah, the Lebanese-based, Iranian-backed terror group, is set to control Lebanon’s Ministry of Public Health. Although Lebanon is ostensibly a U.S. ally—and a major recipient of U.S. aid—the fact that a terrorist group is about to control a major governmental post has received little to no coverage from the Western press.
An AFP infographic grossly minimizes the impact of Palestinian attacks on Israel while at the same time emphasizing the impact of Israel's military response on Gaza.
CBSN falsely reported yesterday that in this week's round of violence, "Palestinians have fired hundreds of rockets at Israel's military." In fact, Palestinians in the Gaza Strip fired several hundreds rockets at scores of Israeli communities – not Israel's military – targeting civilians across the country's south.
CAMERA Arabic has prompted correction of a France 24 Arabic article which erroneously reported that Panama, along with Paraguay, had moved its embassy to Jerusalem only to return it back to Tel Aviv.
CAMERA prompts correction of a Los Angeles Times article which had incorrectly blamed the Israeli blockade for unpaid salaries of civil servants in the Gaza Strip. In fact, Mahmoud Abbas' Palestinian Authority, not Israel, slashed Gaza salaries.
Just a day after a New York Times report obscured key details about Hamas rocket attacks — that they are fired by a terror organization, intentionally target civilian centers, and amount to war crimes — the newspaper published another piece that concealed Hamas responsibility, this time for the situation in the Gaza Strip
Ilhan Omar has tweeted, “Israel has hypnotized the world," and Rashida Tlaib has taken positions inconsistent with Israel's continued existence as a Jewish state, but some mainstream news outlets have ignored these views.
Why does the New York Times pretend Israeli civilians are "caught up in the fighting" between Hamas and Israel instead of acknowledging that Hamas targets Israeli civilians? Perhaps because that gets in the way of the newspaper's preferred "both sides" narrative.
The Washington Post in particular seems to have lost the plot, giving a platform to the leader of an Iranian-backed regime that targets journalists even while it condemns Khashoggi's alleged murder.
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.
