Following communication from CAMERA, AP corrects a headline and article which incorrectly stated that Israel shuttered the cargo crossing into the Gaza Strip. In fact, today's new limitations suspends the transfer of fuel and gas until Sunday, but food and medicine are still crossing through Kerem Shalom.
CAMERA prompts corrections to Agence France Presse captions which had originally referred to rockets "reportedly fired from the Gaza Strip," as if origin of the punishing rocket attacks had yet to be confirmed. (In fact, Hamas had already claimed responsibility, an unusual step.)
"Fighting fake news with real news" is a New Yorker advertising banner which appears alongside an article which had falsely claimed that there are no MRI machines in the Gaza Strip. Following communication from CAMERA staff and many CAMERA members, The New Yorker corrects.
CAMERA prompts correction after a Los Angeles Times article claimed "130 protesters" were killed at the Gaza border, though this figure includes armed and active combatants, who, for instance, set explosives and hurled Molotov cocktails.
CAMERA's Israel office has prompted multiple media outlets, including Agence France Presse, Flash 90 (an Israeli photo service), and Times of Israel, to amend captions which had falsely characterized serial arsonists from Gaza as "activists."
Reuters captions early this week about the devastation in southern Israel caused by Palestinian "kite terror" ignored the fires' cause. In response to CAMERA's communication, subsequent captions note "Palestinians have been causing blazes by flying kites and balloons loaded with flammable materials."
Time relies on an editorial intern to explain how the Gaza Strip became the center of conflict. Ciara Nugent initially ignored that Israel had full withdrawn from the territory in 2005, one of the article's many failings.
The newspaper originally suggested that she had died from inhaling tear gas fired by Israeli troops.
An Associated Press article yesterday stated that vandals destroyed the fuel terminal at Israel's only cargo crossing into Gaza, initially leaving out that the culprits were Gazans, reportedly acting on Hamas instructions. AP responds positively to CAMERA's request to identify those responsible as Palestinian.
CAMERA prompts a series of corrections in The Los Angeles Times after articles this month grossly understated the number of trucks crossing into the Gaza Strip and also under-reported the area of Gaza's fishing zone.
