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.

 

CNN Corrects: ICJ Did Not Find

When the International Court of Justice issued an order on January 26 in the “genocide” case between South Africa and Israel, it soon became common knowledge that the ICJ had found it “plausible” that Israel was committing “genocide.” This common knowledge, however, was in fact a myth.

Media Outlets Correct Yoav Gallant Misquote on Eliminating Hamas

Following last week's New York Times correction of Megan Stack's Op-Ed falsely quoting Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant calling for the annihilation of the Gaza Strip, CAMERA has prompted additional corrections at NPR, Salt Lake Tribune and The Telegraph (London).

UPDATED: The Media Erodes the Jewish Claim to Jerusalem and the Temple Mount

The Western media has increasingly abetted Palestinian propaganda efforts to erase the Jewish claim to Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. Far too many journalists today accept the historic revisionism and political falsehoods put out by Palestinian activists and leaders and promote it with their own jargon and linguistic tricks.

NPR Misleads Three Times on Hamas Arson Attacks

CAMERA has called on NPR to acknowledge Hamas’s arson attacks in the headline, to amend as passage suggesting uncertainty about the purpose of the Israeli counterstrikes, and to correct a straightforward chronological error that wrongly claims the arson attacks were a response to an earlier march.

CBS Falsely Alleges Demolition of Palestinian ‘Village’

CBS's false depiction of Israel's demolition of a handful of illegally tents and pens dangerously built in a long-established military firing zone as the destruction of an entire Palestinian village is one small step away from Congresswoman Ilhan Omar's vitriolic "ethnic cleansing" charge.

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

CAMERA prompts correction of an NPR article which erroneously stated that UN Resolution 242 calls for an Israeli withdrawal from eastern Jerusalem. In fact, the resolution doesn't mention Jerusalem, and does not specify from which and how much territory Israel must withdraw.

“Here and Now” Corrects on “New Settlements” Plan

"Here and Now," produced by NPR and WBUR, is the latest to correct the erroneous claim that Israeli plans to build thousands of "new settlements." Plans are for new homes in existing settlements, not for new settlements.
