CNN bewilderingly decided to amplify an antisemite’s horrific allegations against the Jewish state, notwithstanding they lacked any supporting evidence, and without mentioning her extraordinary bias on the subject.
As CAMERA has repeatedly documented, there is a pattern of CNN reports lobbing horrific allegations at Israel based on exceedingly thin evidence and lots of insinuation. It’s a standard, or practice, akin to tabloid journalism – a standard certainly not appropriate for serious journalism or serious accusations like that of war crimes.
To make such an eye-popping claim in the headline based solely on one man’s hearsay is irresponsible journalism. It comes across as either clickbait or an effort to advance a partisan narrative.
Given CNN’s fondness for investigations, one is left to wonder: why isn’t CNN devoting any substantial effort to holding UNRWA to account by asking the hard questions of the agency?
A consistent concern with CNN investigations is their habit of misleading the audience about the reliability of the evidence presented.
Good investigative journalism is journalism at its best. Unfortunately, that kind of good journalism is rare at CNN. Rather than producing impartial, professional investigations, many of the network’s journalists are acting as one-sided prosecutors when it comes to Israel.
Christmas is a time for religious and family traditions. At CNN this weekend, the traditions included appropriating Jesus to besmirch the Jewish state and erasing the existence of Palestinian violence and Israeli victims.
CAMERA’s Alex Safian joined Mark Levin on his top-rated FoxNews program Life, Liberty and Levin to discuss the abysmal media coverage of Israel’s war against Hamas, which was triggered by the terrorist organization’s horrific massacre of Israeli civilians on Oct. 7.
Two CNN reporters spin the disturbing results showing widespread Palestinian support for the October 7 attack by Palestinian terrorist organizations by suggesting support for the attack doesn’t actually mean they support the atrocities that characterized the attack. This isn't journalism. This is damage control.
Over the weekend, there was much to desire when it came to CNN’s online coverage of the Israel-Hamas War. Reality was downgraded to just an “Israeli claim.” Terror tunnels were upgraded to a McDonald’s drive-through. Meanwhile, important stories that provide crucial context for those seeking to understand events continue to be omitted.
