When Archbishop Desmond Tutu's in the news, his Nobel Peace Prize is mentioned. His anti-Zionism and antisemitism usually are not. Such omissions paint a misleading portrait.
CAMERA prompts correction of CNN's article today which claimed that presidential hopeful Scott Walker met with Werner Herzog on the Iran deal. Walker met with Israeli opposition leader Isaac Herzog, not German film director Werner.
CAMERA staff prompts correction of a CNN report which erred on Gaza's chronology and used inaccurate terminology for the Palestine Mandate. A misleading caption about access to Gaza remains.
Several media outlets, citing CNN, incorrectly reported that Israel's aid delegation to Nepal was the largest of any country's. In fact, India sent the largest team. CAMERA prompted corrections at the Times of Israel, Algemeiner and i24news.
Amnesty International this week released a report blaming Palestinians for a much-publicized incident that resulted in the deaths of Palestinian children and other civilians during last summer's war between Hamas and Israel. CAMERA discusses some of the takeaways.

Misleading photo captions can inflame tension in Jerusalem, falsely depicting Israeli provocations that never were. Also, AP and CNN fail to clarify a caption which downplays Arab violence.
