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.

 

NPR Corrects: Not Only Sderot Hit By Rockets

CAMERA prompts correction of an NPR article which erroneously implied that Palestinian rocket fire last week solely targeted the Israeli town of Sderot. In fact, Palestinians fired at numerous communities across southern Israel.

Haaretz Corrects Headline About Knesset Speaker’s Rejection of Arabic Letter

CAMERA's Israel office prompts correction of headline in Haaretz's English edition which inaccurately stated that the Knesset speaker refused to sign a letter because it was in Arabic. As the Hebrew headline correctly noted, Yuli Edelstein refused to sign a letter he could not understand, and had it translated into Hebrew so he could sign it.

Reuters Corrects About Israel’s Capital, New Law About Speakers in Schools

CAMERA prompts Reuters to correct after an article erroneously referred to Tel Aviv as shorthand for Israel. The news agency also corrected a headline which inaccurately stated that a new Israeli laws "bans some left-wing groups," while the law in question also affects right-wing groups which take action against Israel's army.
