The Washington Post in particular seems to have lost the plot, giving a platform to the leader of an Iranian-backed regime that targets journalists even while it condemns Khashoggi's alleged murder.
The press has largely ignored an Oct. 29, 2018 report by the Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS), which highlighted new documentation seized by Israel from Tehran’s “nuclear archive” which “indicates that Iran’s nuclear weaponization efforts did not stop after 2003.” That report upends a long-standing media narrative.
After communication from CAMERA, the Washington Post corrected a misleading headline suggesting that Pittsburgh's Jewish community leaders were averse to a condolence visit by the U.S. President.
The Washington Post highlights abuses by the Palestinian Authority and Hamas. However, the paper's coverage of the topic is belated and seemingly spurred by its reliance on an anti-Israel NGO. Other draconian measures by Palestinian officials, such as their imprisonment and threats towards Palestinians who sell or rent land to Jews, are omitted by The Post.
The Washington Post continues to obfuscate on the goals of the anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) effort. The Post hides the real agenda of BDS and omits the movement's ties to terrorist-linked entities. In so doing, the newspaper violates its own stated standards and policies.
The Washington Post misleads on the true nature of the BDS movement; failing to report its documented links to terrorism and its true objective: The destruction of Israel. While it was busy filing inaccurate reports on BDS, The Post ignored a Palestinian terrorist attack and Palestinian political developments.
The Washington Post has warned about "resurgent global antisemitism." Yet, The Post has recently given two softball interviews to foreign leaders known for their antisemitism.
The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank has long preferred snark over thoughtful analysis. And his Sept. 21, 2018 column, “America’s Jews are watching Israel in horror,” offers ample proof. In it, he slurs Israel as an apartheid state-in-the-making, while ignoring inconvenient facts.
Mahmoud Abbas, the head of the Palestinian Authority (PA), the entity that rules the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) has been appointed to lead a terrorist organization. But as CAMERA noted in a Washington Jewish Week Op-Ed, the media has stayed silent about the purported "peace partner's" new job.
CAMERA takes to the pages of The Washington Post to address the paper's coverage of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA). CAMERA tells the paper's readers about UNRWA's politicized definition of "refugee" and the organization's documented links to terror groups.
