On New Years Eve, a domestic terrorist attacked several New York City police officers. His motive? American support for Israel.
AP's "clarifying" 2022 photos essay throws the news agency's anti-Israel obsession into sharp relief, putting clashes during Shireen Abu Akleh's funeral ahead of iconic Ukraine war images, leaving Iran out of the frame, and recasting an Islamic Jihad commander as a victim.
Several hours after Tiran Fero's family reported that Palestinian gunmen killed the Israeli Druze high schooler by unhooking his ventilator in a Jenin hospital, leading media outlets continued to ignore their account. And then CAMERA stepped in.
Associated Press today commendably amends incomplete captions which had initially only stated that Palestinian Haitham Shuham was shot dead by Israeli troops while failing to report why. An Israeli soldier fatally shot Shuham after he wounded a soldier, slamming a hammer into his face.

CAMERA prompts a slew of corrections after AP erroneously reported that Australia has recognized Tel Aviv as Israel's capital.
Associated Press immediately covered Booking.com's decision Friday to warn customers against Israeli settlements as being located in "occupied territory" and therefore posing "high risks to safety and human rights."

But the murder of three Israelis sitting in a Tel Aviv bar? Until CAMERA intervened, the only thing the wire service found deadly about that incident was the cops' killing of the Palestinian gunman "who attacked a bar."
While BBC Arabic and Al Hurra commendably corrected after inaccurately designating all of Israel's Karish gas field as disputed by Lebanon, Associated Press declines to clarify captions which uncritically parrot Hezbollah talking points falsely portraying the maritime resource as Lebanese.
