Times of Israel adds key information about Palestinian attacks to an AFP article, one of two recent AFP articles which whitewashed Palestinian violence. AFP's tilt isn't surprising given its employment of Fatah's Nasser Abu Baker.
AFP's Nasser Abu Baker is one of 1,400 delegates to the Seventh Fatah Congress. He is also running for the Fatah Revolutionary Council. How does this square with AFP's stated commitment to impartiality?
CAMERA prompted AFP to acknowledge that "Jewish visitors to the flashpoint Al-Aqsa mosque compound" in actuality means Jewish visitors to their own holy site, the Temple Mount.
Biased captions by AFP and Reuters about Gaza teen Abdulrahman Al-Dabag noted only the Palestinian charge that Israeli troops shot him dead. Thanks to CAMERA, the agencies add that Israel's army said troops used only tear gas.

Though Agence France Presse's revision of an article yesterday was small — it involved just three letters — its significance was much greater. In response to communication from CAMERA, AFP clarifies that the Temple Mount is Judaism's holiest site.
