The network misled call-in show viewers about the proposed trip to Israel for the two anti-Israel Congresswomen.
More than policy itself, it is the reaction and discussion of Benjamin Netanyahu's decision to bar two anti-Israel Congresswomen that has the potential to weaken traditionally strong American support for Israel.
The Washington Post and others play defense for U.S. Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, running puff-pieces while omitting their association with antisemitic organizations.
CAMERA prompts correction of a Haaretz article which erroneously identified Rep. Rashida Tlaib as "the first Palestinian-American representative in Congress." While she is the first Palestinian-American woman in Congress, others representatives of Palestinian descent preceded her.
Following contact from CAMERA, The Hill has corrected a report that called U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib the "first Palestinian American to serve in Congress." She's not.
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.
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.
One month after The New York Times was slammed for publishing an Alice Walker interview which promoted an antisemitic book, the "paper of record" cuts out the antisemitic "dual loyalty" slur from Representative Rashida Tlaib's tweet.
The rise in antisemitism is troubling. So is the media's growing tendency to politicize, obfuscate, omit—and even perpetuate—antisemitic tropes.
