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.
For the second time this year, CAMERA prompts correction of an Associated Press article which wrongly used the term "Palestine." The article is still marred, however, by omission of the fact that much of the international community views Hamas as a terror group.
Bloomberg errs, stating that Israel’s capture of the West Bank has "been ruled an illegal occupation in repeated UN resolutions.” While the UN has made clear that Israeli annexation of the West Bank would be “inadmissible,” no resolutions argued that the capture of the West Bank and subsequent occupation was unlawful.
CAMERA Arabic prompts correction of a Deutsche Welle article which erroneously stated that Israel's Independence Day is celebrated on May 15. Since the holiday follows the Hebrew calendar, the Gregorian date changes from year to year.
