In their recent reports, both Foreign Policy Magazine and The Washington Post omit UNRWA’s ties to terror groups and promotion of anti-Jewish violence. UNRWA, as CAMERA highlighted in a recent Op-Ed, has a long and sordid history—and the media should report it, not cover it up.
A BBC article about Palestinian rocket attacks on Israel, and Israel's retaliatory strikes in Gaza, engages in "last-first" reporting, strips away context and introduces a factual inaccuracy, claiming that Hamas targeted a military vehicle when in fact terrorists fired at civilian vehicles.
Agence France Presse captions identify a site hit by Israel's air force as a "tourist resort" in Khan Yunis, Gaza. The army spokesman tells CAMERA: it's a training facility for Hamas' naval commando unit.
Following a well-worn pattern, The New York Times is again downplaying Palestinian belligerence, this time obscuring the fact that intensive Palestinian rocket attacks against southern Israel prompted a wave of Israeli airstrikes on Hamas sites in the Gaza Strip in the last 24 hours.
The role of a shill is to conceal any nefarious intent by the huckster, to protect the sheen of the product.
Palestinian rulers oppressing and brutalizing their own people seldom make the front page. The reason is simple: The media is often uninterested in reporting on Palestinian affairs unless Israel can be blamed.
Since CAMERA compelled The New Yorker to correct an article on Gaza cancer patients which falsely stated there are no MRI machines in Gaza. Now, CAMERA's new exclusive research turns up more falsehoods about medical permit approvals. The New Yorker owes its readers more corrections.
"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.
The Washington Post minimizes—and often fails to report—Palestinian anti-Jewish violence. The paper has increasingly underplayed threats facing the Jewish state.
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.
