Journalism is failing. Not because of revenue issues and the rise of digital media. But because of decreasing standards and ethics. The Washington Post, which paid ten million dollars for a Super Bowl ad but isn't willing to pay for an ombudsman, is a case in point.
CAMERA sent a letter to Rev. Darrell Cates, Director of Conference and Church Relations for the Oklahoma United Methodist Foundation about the Christ at the Checkpoint Conference he helped organize last year. In the letter, CAMERA challenged conference organizers to decide between "anti-normalization" and genuine peace activism.
What is "Jewish Voice for Peace"? It is an anti-Semitic hate group that masquerades as a Jewish social justice, peace-promoting organization. While the mainstream media has been derelict in covering up for it, the evidence must speak for itself.
The Washington Post uses unattributed Palestinian officials and shady NGOs as sources in a lengthy report on an archaeological dig in Jerusalem.
"Time to Break the Silence on Palestine" demands Michelle Alexander's New York Times Op-Ed, as if the very same paper has not been publishing a daily drumbeat of material focused on alleged Israeli crimes, real and imagined. The only "silence on Palestine" has been on Palestinian conduct, as the paper's own public editor noted in 2014.
C-SPAN recently aired a “discussion” hosted by National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations (NCUSAR), an Arab centered organization hostile to Israel. This hostility was reflected in the choice of panelists.
Marc Lamont Hill's recent U.N. speech calling for the elimination of Israel should come as no surprise; despite efforts by the media to muddy the waters, both Hill and the U.N. committee he was addressing have a long history of opposing Jewish self-determination.
CAMERA prompts correction of a letter-to-the-editor by Eitan Peled, former programming director for SJP at UCLA, for his false claim that there are "hundreds of Palestinian children in Israeli military prisons." No Palestinians, minors or otherwise, are held in Israeli military prisons.
Following communication from CAMERA, Haaretz clarifies its Airbnb coverage, making clear that the hospitality company's West Bank settlements boycott does not also extend to eastern Jerusalem. The New York Post likewise corrects the error.
The Washington Post continues to obfuscate on the goals of the anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) effort. The Post hides the real agenda of BDS and omits the movement's ties to terrorist-linked entities. In so doing, the newspaper violates its own stated standards and policies.
