Both common sense and experience should tell journalists not to trust Hamas, a genocidal U.S.-designated terrorist group that uses human shields. Both journalists and policymakers, including the U.S. Secretary of State, have warned not to do so. But the Washington Post is advocating for trusting the terror organization.
A recent USA Today timeline on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is rife with omissions. Intifadas, terror campaigns, rejected peace offers, thousands of dead Israelis, all are but a fraction of what four USA Today reporters left out.
The number of erroneous and seriously misleading claims contained in just this article raises serious concerns about USA Today’s commitment to accuracy. That the errors all seem to downplay Palestinian terrorism or distort the Israeli and Jewish history similarly raises concern about USA Todays’ commitment to fairness in reporting.
A USA Today report on a U.S. Congressional trip to Israel offers an example of good, old-fashioned journalism. The newspaper avoided editorializing and refrained from inserting commentary while providing readers with essential information.
A recent column by a USA Today producer raises questions about the newspaper's commitment to its own standards and guidelines. The article absurdly equates Russia's invasion of Ukraine to the Israel-Islamist conflict, and it covers for Hamas, a terrorist group that calls for Israel's destruction.
CAMERA has prompted a correction to a USA Today report that inaccurately claimed that the U.S. has provided military aid to Israel since its founding.
For weeks while communities in Israel burned, many major U.S. news outlets kept silent. As CAMERA tells JNS, Gaza-based terror groups have been launching incendiary devices into southern Israel, resulting in major damage. Yet, mainstream Western media has failed to provide meaningful coverage.
An NJ Record news report reads more like a press release from American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), an anti-Israel group. The Record distorts facts, omits relevant history, and uncritically quotes organizations whose members have repeated antisemitic statements.
The Washington Post uncritically quotes the vice chairman of the Fatah movement for his thoughts on the Trump administration's peace plan. The problem? The Post fails to disclose that he's an unrepentant terrorist whose nickname is "Abu Jihad."
A recent Washington Post report on deteriorating conditions on Gaza relied on anti-Israel organizations. Worse still, The Post failed to place guilt where it belongs: with Hamas, the genocidal terrorist group that rules the Gaza Strip.
