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 correction after NBC reported that as many as a third of Bnei Brak residents were feared to be infected with coronavirus despite the fact that the HMO which was the purported source disavowed the figure.
CAMERA Arabic prompts correction of an Arabic report at Alhurra which falsely alleged that Israeli Health Minister Yaakov Litzman attributed the coronavirus to divine punishment for homosexuality. CAMERA's UK Media Watch previously prompted correction of the fake news item in Pakistan, the UK and India.
An April 15, 2020 Washington Post op-ed by an anti-Israel activist implied that Israel doesn't allow in medical supplies to Hamas-ruled Gaza. Following contact from CAMERA, The Post changed the wording to acknowledge that Israel does allow medical supplies.
