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 Arabic prompts correction of a Reuters report which in Arabic inaccurately characterized all Arabs who left Israel in 1948 as having been expelled, ignoring that the vast majority fled, often at the urging of their own leaders.
CAMERA prompts correction of Associated Press photo captions which had confused two Muslim pilgrimages, erroneously stating that pilgrims from Gaza have not been able to participate in the major hajj journey to Mecca for five years.
CAMERA prompts correction of a series of articles in Haaretz's English edition which erroneously reported that a Russian-Israeli meeting was dedicated to the "strengthening of the security coordination between Israel and Syria's armies." In fact, Benjamin Netanyahu's meeting with Vladminir Putin will address coordination with the Russian, not Syrian, army.
CAMERA prompts correction of an NBC article which falsely reported that PM Netanyahu promised two ministries to the Otzma Hayehudit party, the political descendant of the banned racist Kach party. In fact, the promise was made to the mainstream right-wing Jewish Home party.
After initially reporting that abuses carried out by employees of the international monitoring group in Hebron were "alleged," Haaretz's English edition corrects, acknowledging that videos documented the vandalism and violence.
