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.

       

      NPR Misleads Three Times on Hamas Arson Attacks

      NPR Corrects: UN Resolution 242 Does Not Call For Jerusalem Withdrawal

      Updated: NPR Broadcasts Gaza Import Correction

      After initially issuing only an online clarification regarding an "All Things Considered" broadcast which erred about the import of building materials into Gaza, NPR agreed with CAMERA that an on-air correction was needed. The follow-up was immediate.

      CAMERA Prompts NPR Correction on Hezbollah Rockets

      CAMERA staff prompted a correction at National Public Radio yesterday, following an earlier "All Things Considered" report which falsely stated that Hezbollah fired rockets at Israel only after Israel hit Lebanon with airstrikes last summer.
