The Los Angeles Times outflanks CNN as the mainstream Western media which has adopted the most fantastical, most journalistically-challenged conclusion about the unsolved fatal shooting of Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh.
Editors in Los Angeles and London snip away at information in wire stories exposing Palestinians as anything other than victims.
From student editor responsible for publication of a notorious cartoon dripping in antisemitic motifs to Los Angeles Times tech writer practicing unethical journalism in service of the anti-Israel BDS (boycott, divest, sanctions) movement, it was a short road for Suhauna Hussain.
Associated Press' imperfect headline is "Israel strikes Gaza after gunfire wounds civilian near fence." The Los Angeles Times further degrades it.
In the eyes of The Los Angeles Times, Israeli plans to advance plans to build Jewish homes in Jerusalem are an "obstacle to peace" of the first order, demanding a page-one, 1,000 word story. The actual murder of an Israeli citizen and the arrest of dozens of terrorists with plans and means to inflict mass casualties is not a story at all.
CAMERA calls on senior executives of The Los Angeles Times to forthrightly repudiate the Open Letter signed by 500 media practitioners, including nine Times journalists, who advocate for partisan coverage of Israel and the Palestinians in total contravention of ethical journalism.
The Times' Nabih Bulos understates the permitted Gaza fishing zone and overstates the coastal territory's unemployment figure. CAMERA refuses to let the facts slip away.

The Los Angeles Times' page-one story, "In war-ravaged Gaza, it's no business, as usual," is not journalism as usual. The article disregards basic journalistic requirements including the right of reply to criticism and the responsibility to correct errors.
Misidentifying a destroyed office that served Hamas commanders as "civilian" and inflating the number of east Jerusalem Palestinians facing eviction from 31 to "several hundred" are just two examples of the Los Angeles Times' rough start covering Hamas' war against Israel.
