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.
In the latest blow to The Times' expired identity, the former Paper of Record refuses to set the facts straight on Jewish sovereignty in ancient Israel. The longest period of Jewish rule extended beyond three centuries, not 80 years.
Far from "distinct," the Beita riots, marked by the use of explosives and burning tires, closely mirror Gaza's "night confusion" units which have been operating intermittently for three years in an effort to make life unbearable for Israelis living nearby.
VOA commendably amends after comparing the percentage of Israeli Jews who are vaccinated versus the percentage of Israeli Arabs who are not, a formulation which falsely suggests the figure for Arabs is much lower than it actually is.
CAMERA prompts correction after United Press International incorrectly reported that Israel has long opposed a two-state solution. Israel's long history of accepting deals that would have established a Palestinian state belie the erroneous assertion.
The death today of Osama Dueij, fatally wounded during violent clashes at the Israel-Gaza border, made big news. His status as a fighter belonging to Hamas' military wing, a designated terror group, made less news.
Sipa editors in New York and Los Angeles apply zero editing to material from contributors in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip, resulting in anti-Israel fabrications that incite and have no resemblance to professional journalism.
CAMERA prompts improved AFP coverage of the family unification law, which prevents West Bank or Gaza Palestinians married to Israeli citizens from obtaining citizenship. AFP clarifies that the law applies to all Israeli citizens, not just Israeli Arabs. AP declined to clarify.
