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.

Media outlets largely ignored last night's infiltration of armed Palestinians from Gaza into southern Israel as world leaders are set to convene at Jerusalem's World Holocaust Forum. Reuters falsely reported an "attempt[ed]" infiltration, when in fact the assailants were hundreds of meters inside Israeli territory.

Reuters Corrects Arabic Report: BDS Not Illegal in Israel

After CAMERA prompted correction of a Reuters report that Israel has "criminalized" support for the anti-Israel BDS (boycott, divestment, sanctions) campaign, CAMERA Arabic elicits correction of the identical error at Reuters Arabic.

Thomson Reuters Corrects: Gay Fathers Get Paternity Leave in Israel

Reuters Corrects on Gay Marriage in Israel

CAMERA prompts correction of a Reuters article which erroneously claimed that gay marriages are "illegal" in Israel. While gay marriages, like all Jewish marriages in Israel carried outside the Orthodox Rabbinate are not recognized, they are not in violation of any law.

Reuters Corrects Inflated Gaza Refugees Figure

CAMERA prompts correction of a Reuters article which erroneously reported that "nearly all" of Gaza's residents are 1948 refugees or their descendants. In fact, that figure is closer to 70 percent.
