The press—the self-styled “guardians of truth”—is failing to provide full and honest reporting about the mainstreaming of anti-Semitism in Congress. Their failure will enable the virus to spread.
Following contact from CAMERA, The Washington Post changes a report that implies Rep. Rashida Tlaib merely opposes Israel on the grounds that it is a "Jewish-only" state.
The Washington Post's coverage of the anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement is superficial, inaccurate and lazy. As CAMERA notes in a recent Op-Ed, The Post's failure to report accurately about BDS comes at the expense of its reputation.
With growing frequency, The Washington Post has published op-eds that effectively whitewash or obfuscate on antisemitism when it emanates from the left. The recent controversy over Ilhan Omar’s most recent antisemitic tweet offers several examples.
For more than forty years, press and policymakers have been misreading the Islamic Republic of Iran. In four decades, The Washington Post, for example, has gone from comparing regime founder Ayatollah Khomeini to Gandhi, to presenting a regime apparatchik and 9/11 truther as a "moderate."
The Washington Post uses unattributed Palestinian officials and shady NGOs as sources in a lengthy report on an archaeological dig in Jerusalem.
The rise in antisemitism is troubling. So is the media's growing tendency to politicize, obfuscate, omit—and even perpetuate—antisemitic tropes.
The Washington Post used an obituary for former Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Arens to belittle the current prime minister of Israel. The obituary displayed the newspaper's anti-Netanyahu zeal and its inability to present readers with the full story.
An online blog is but the latest example of The Washington Post's tendency to omit the true objectives of the antisemitic boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement that seeks to eliminate the Jewish state.
Journalists habitually describe the U.N.'s anti-Israel animus as "perceived," or merely the view of "Israel and its supporters." But as CAMERA demonstrates in this Fox News Op-Ed, the United Nations has long been biased against the Jewish state; it's a fact, not an opinion.
