The New York Times again shoehorns events to fit a desired narrative. IHRA's widely-embraced Working Definition of Antisemitism, adopted by more than two dozen countries, and embraced by Obama's State Department, becomes nothing more than a "disputed definition" "unilaterally adopted" by a controversial Trump administration official.
The New York Times won't correct an error it has corrected twice before, and won't defend its incorrect claim. But it is simply false to claim, as does David Halbfinger and Michael Crowley, that there had been until recently a “longstanding American policy treating the settlements as illegal.”
The Times' assertion that Haifa's Arab citizens "were forced to leave or escaped" in 1948 is belied by the paper's own coverage from that time. Even the Gray Lady's own archives pose no obstacle to the paper's manipulation in the name of ideology.
After twice in the past having corrected articles which erroneously associated Jesus and Palestine, The New York Times once again peddles this ahistorical falsehood.
Two days after the NY Times framed the Israeli army’s fight against Covid-19 as a break from its quest for new ways to "kill people," the paper doubled down with an egregiously skewed piece about Palestinians imprisoned for killing Israeli civilians.
Unable or unwilling to portray Israel in an entirely good light, a New York Times article about the Israeli Directorate of Defense Research & Development's efforts to combat the Covid-19 pandemic begins by casting the department in derogatory terms that Israel’s enemies might use.
In April, with the global battle to contain the spread of Covid-19 in full swing, CAMERA elicited a record 27 corrections in a variety of news outlets: from major media including The New York Times, Associated Press and NBC, to non-Western and alternative news sources.
The New York Times "By the Book" column about various authors' book choices includes a widely discredited piece of anti-Israel propaganda by Ilan Pappé. While the author in question speaks disparagingly about fiction "masquerading" as non-fiction, she is not talking about Pappé's book. That remains on her nightstand as a recommended read.
The New York Times corrects after taking sides in the dispute between Israel and the Palestinians over the West Bank.
The New York Times was slow to report on Hamas's arrest of a Palestinian bridge-building activist. Don't expect the newspaper to note that a former Amnesty International employee urged the terror group to arrest him.
