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.
CAMERA prompts a forthright correction after Haaretz's English edition falsely stated that Palestinian families had decades ago purchased disputed land where the Baten al-Hawa enclave of Silwan in Jerusalem is located.
CAMERA prompts correction of a Voice of America headline which referred to the present day West Bank as "Palestine." But the accompanying video, essentially a promotion for the "Walled Off" hotel in Bethlehem, still gives no indication whatsoever as to why Israel constructed the security barrier.
CAMERA prompts correction of an Associated Press article which incorrectly reported that there is no egalitarian prayer area at Jerusalem's Western Wall. Natan Sharansky's plan, abandoned by Prime Minister Netanyahu, was to upgrade and to expand the existing space.
