Media Corrections

Accuracy and accountability are among the most important tenets of journalism. In combination, they mean media organizations are expected to publish or broadcast forthright corrections after sharing inaccurate information. The following corrections are among the many prompted by CAMERA’s communication with reporters and editors.

 

Haaretz Corrects Mistranslation on Moroccan-Israeli Relations

Haaretz corrects a mistranslation which resulted in the factual error claiming that Morocco finalized the opening of its diplomatic mission in Israel following the outbreak of the second intifada. In fact, at that time, both countries shuttered their respective missions.

Fox Corrects Erroneous Reference to Tel Aviv as Israel’s Capital

CAMERA's Israel office prompts correction of a Fox News article which erroneously cited Tel Aviv as a metonym for Israel. Fox is the latest media outlet to correct after referring to Tel Aviv, and not the capital of Jerusalem, as shorthand for Israel.

Foreign Policy Op-Ed : Convicted Palestinian Terrorists Are ‘Political Prisoners’

Foreign Policy gives a pass to to Salem Barahmeh of the Palestine Institute for Public Diplomacy to whitewash convicted Palestinian terrorists who carried out lethal attacks against Israelis as "political prisoners." Separately, the publication revises Barahmeh's unfounded reference to the displacement of "entire Palestinian communities," enabled by the Trump administration.

Deutsche Welle Corrects: UN Resolution 194 Doesn’t Guarantee ‘Right of Return’

CAMERA prompts a forthright, thorough correction after Deutsche Welle erroneously reported that UN Resolution 194 "guaranteed" the Palestinian "right of return." The General Assembly resolution is a suggestion, not a guarantee, conditions return on refugees willing to live at peace with their neighbors, and places return on equal footing with resettlement and compensation.
